Triumph Repair/TR6 Clutch adjustment

Recently purchased a 1976 TR-6.  Struggled with the clutch issues like many others, added a new slave cylinder and rebuilt the master cylinder---still engaged right at the floor and got worse as I drove it.  Finally I tried holding the flexible line between the metal lines to the slave cylinder while some one pushed the clutch pedal in---the new flexible line actually compressed and its length shortened.  It was supposed to be the correct flexible line but obviously wasn't.  Went to a hydraulic supply store and had my end fittings put on some no flex, no stretch really good hose and the problem was cured.

Now the clutch is like it should be, no issues at all.

Hope this helps!     Steve

Expertise

My area of specialty is the Triumph Spitfire 1500 (1973-1980) although I have some technical experience with the GT6 and TR6 models also. I can cover questions on all areas of the Spitfire, from basic mechanical questions to where to find original style seat covers and soft tops. I am not an expert on the TR2/3/4 models. If you need specific detailed help with these models I first recommend obtaining a good repair manual such as the Robert Bentley manual for your particular model.

Experience

I have been a Spitfire owner for 20 years and have done all my own repair work. On the Spitfire I've done just about everything except mount and balance tires.

In addition to street use I have been autocrossing a Spitfire with the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) in Modified class since 1997.
