Joe,
I got to pull mine out too. Lived with a noisy release bearing all summer and autumn. Can turn up the radio only so much! smiling smiley This seems to an annual ritual with me, looking into quick disconnects for the bell housing. (just kidding)

Sorry to here that Tony, what manufacture of throw out bearing , clutch and pressure plate are you using? I need to replace mine, also I need to have the flywheel resurfaced.

Joe,
I replaced the clutch and bearing about 10-years ago. Don't remember the brand but bought it from Moss Motors. The clutch is still fine, just that bearing that sounds like a trunk full of crickets when I'm driving! Noise stops when you use the clutch.

Last year it was the flywheel ring gear that I had to replace. Had to cook the flywheel in the oven to get it on. And yes...17 bolts hold the bellhousing to the engine, I know them by name.

Took the TR6 (supercharged) for a 150 mile rally (+300 mile round trip to get there) in Essex. Ran top down in near freezing but sunny conditions.. fab roads.. highlighted a few tuning issues, not least a periodic back fire..
Now deaf and stiff.. but all worth it!
Cheers
Tim

Had a little brake trouble over the summer and rebuilt the master. It never did give the braking I had, even after a couple of bleedings.
So was working on the Spit6 tonight and put the TR6 on charge while I was there. Some brake fluid in the middle of the electric switch and it was leaking down onto the frame.
A light bulb turned on. The only way it can leak is the PDWA valve has slide to one side and allowing fluid into that middle chamber. OK, so that may be why the brakes don't feel right, only get half the system. I took a guess and figured the backs needed some help. I opened the back brake line and pumped the brake one time slowly, heard the click and closed it off. Solid pedal at the top.
Lucky, you better believe it, I've had to take those suckers apart to center them in the past.

Removed the gears from the gear box, will inspect and order parts for rebuild. Good videos and documentation on line for this project.

Nice job, Mike. Where'd you get your wind shield? I need a new one but I'm getting "sticker shock" looking!

I got this one from TRF for $180 for a lightly tinted glass. $150 for clear.

Thanks ... that's probably what I'll go with. I was originally looking for Triplex but they're ridiculously expensive.

I forgot to put it in the garage.. Oh well, it is a daily driver.
