Wedge List / Anyone want a TR7/TR8 transmission?
« Last post by Alan Woody on May 19, 2019, 11:32:22 AM »
I bought this transmission from Ted about 4 or 5 years ago because I wanted

to rebuild it and swap it out for the transmission in my TR8.  Well, my TR8

was totalled over a year ago (rear ended).  I got rid of the TR8, but the

transmission that I bought is still in a box in my garage, so now, of

course, my wife AND my daughter are on me about getting rid of it.  Anyone

want it?  It also comes with a new pump and seals that Ted provided as well

as some bearings and seals that I bought.  It's located in Yorktown,

Virginia.

Could request a Heritage Certificate.

Just send them the VIN, engine and body numbers.  The good part is they can

tell you if all three numbers left the factory together, the bad part is the

cost - B#43.

Jim,
I've stumbled over a rarer yet beast over here in Sweden:

An ex-Californian, black /1976/ TR7 DHC efi, complete with double
bump bonnet, red tartan interior and Keepax wheels.  Sadly the
fuel injection is gone - but else it's OK.
Registered on the CommNo ACL14845U ... what's up with this ???
I don't think the ore were mined for that car back in '76, even...

Of course I just _had to_ buy it when it was offered for sale

- it's got exactly those features dads black TR7V8 lacks:  it's LHD,
it's DHC, it has an EFI tank.  AND! it's got a true lack of tin worm.
Plus it lacks all the features dads car do have: a V8, full leather
interior, luggage rack, Viper body kit and vented big brake kit.
They will be a match made in heaven - and one less Spider will be
sent east from the US...

And with an obviously strange identity I have no second thoughts
whatsoever on parting it out and having that identity scrapped.

I will now start to look for a TR7 hardtop to fit on the DHC body...
Cheers,
/Odd

/The UK data from the DVLA is seriously flawed as most genuine TR8s were

listed under Triumph Other (Model Missing - 52,000) - but that includes

a wide range of alternative Triumph vehicles as well as some more TR7s I

would imagine as 52000 is a lot of cars!/





A number of those 52,000 are Triumph motor bikes though, so may be not

that many cars ? or the list I use combines all Triumph cars and bikes

and lists 52,000 in missing models as well.
