Triumph TR6 - TR6 1975 transmission identification #

Hello,

I need to find that transmission identification number usually stamped on left boss near clutchshaft. Unfortunately there is noting there except D26 L, which is not suitable.

Did someone ever noticed that number stamped in another place on trans?

Thanks,

Jean G.

I never did find a number stamped on my tranny.

What do you need it for?

Jean,
Search the archives for a note from me on this subject. I think that I may have the same number as you. Can't check right now, but as I recall, the number did not fit anything and may well have been D26 L. Asked several sources about that number and no one would own up to recognizing anything about it. If you discover an answer, please post.

Jean,
My comment, 4 Aug 2007, Gearbox Serial Number...my number is D 21 E 71. If you can contribute to understanding this please do! Thanks.

Thanks all!

I am still without knowing if it is a 75's trans.. As I am doing a major overhaul of my TR6 I will inspect transmission and knowing which model year is a plus.

Jean,
My D 21 E 71 is a 1971 TR-6, manufactured in June 1971 (so almost a 72!!).

I have the following serial number on my transmission.
Tranny Serial number CD 15903
OD Serial Number OD22/61753 009874 A

It is on a 69 TR6 and I know it is original. I can't remember where I read it from but I jotted it down when I redid my transmission in 2008.

Doubt this helps you but FYI anyway.

Jean:
I have no clue what you have there and I can't find a reference to a D series anywhere. I too have an odd gearbox with # CT78323. It is a Stanpart box and looks identical to all other TR6 boxes but that is not a TR6 box number or a TR4 box number. If anybody identifies yours or mine I'd be very interested in hearing from them. TR6 V8 pic attached just for laughs; bought that gearbox from the owner of this piece of work.

The number of and layout of the interupts on the top of the tranny will help norrow down its' age. See the layouts in the TRF books.

I've asked the question around and nobody is familiar with those #'s.
How about a pic?

Hi,

I'll remove transmission tunnel next W.E. to see if I could find Identificaton # somewhere else on tat trans.

Cheers,

Jean,
When I discovered that my tranmission ID # did not match the conventional numbering, I queried several sources throughout the LBC world. I got mostly quizzical reeponses from most. Almost everyone remarked that they had never seen such numbering and no one owned up to understanding the ID including some who had worked at the Triumph factories in the 60-70's. If you discover a revelation, please let us all know. I'm convinced that my transmission is original to the car. There is NO evidence of replacement (although, I do not know how I'd actually know that).

Don,
I checked this out once and decided that ~$150USD could be better spent than buying a "birth certificate" for my LBC.

Don,

It is of no use if the trans. has been change by a P.O..

Jean G.
J. G. Catford

No, I know that . I was answering Doug's question about if his Trans is original or not.
DON KELLY

Okay....the Heritage certificate does not give a transmission serial number. The only transmission reference on mine is that it has overdrive. It does give the engine number, but that is the only component they reference besides the VIN and commision number. Kinda cool to have if all the numbers match, and it's not $150, but at the current exchange rate, about $64 US. check it it at the link provided by Don.

Rod Nichols

Rod, that cause you paid for the $64 version .
Should have bought the $150 one
DON KELLY

So.....I shouldn't have bought the $150 car....?
