NMNA, but if a Triumph lover doesn't take it, will probably be parted out or crushed.
It's much too rare and nice for such a fate.

Yup! 2000 parts. I ordered them a month or so ago. Ended up with progressive wound uprated 1" lowering springs, a new stainless head pipe, a pinion seal, and a new to me flywheel. This is to swap a gt6 mk2 engine into the car. Then I'll install the 15" minilites and new booster and drive it! Kyle.

I bought it, and it arrived this morning. I've not owned a Triumph before but a string of Rabbits, Datsun Roadsters, Corvettes and Porsches make this something new and different. I really like the size and styling and hope to not make a hash of it!

I'm gonna say they're not the fastest things on the road, but the front seats recline all the way, they have rear heat channels, indicators on the b-post, stirrups er uh hand grips...all for 1967

Chandler,
WELL DONE!!! Very glad to hear you have taken this on.

Most everything said on the GRM board was correct, save for changing the front and back plates and the sump if you wanted to put a 2.5 in.
That is true for a 2L or a 2.5 from a saloon or TR5/6 to fit it into a "small chassis" Triumph, one Herald based, but not for the saloon.
And the saloon has a one piece gearbox, unlike said small chassied cars.

Triumph used the 2L/2.5L saloons for rallying, and Paul Newman for racing. Long thread here about his, "Le Taxi": http://clubtriumph.eu/cgi-bin/forum10/Blah.pl?m-1202395099/s-90/

As Carter said, a 2.5L can make a difference to a car heavier than a Herald, but as it stands it a great motor. Often discussed on the above UK message board: http://club.triumph.org.uk/cgi-bin/forum10/Blah.pl/Blah.pl?b-2000/ and it has it's own Register where experts live: http://triumph2000register.co.uk/

Good luck!
John

Slow? Mine will cruise at 80 and be plenty comfortable. I enjoy driving mine when I can. I'm in the process of swapping a later 2.0 into mine. But lack of carbs will stop me for a bit, but only to finish the gt6. Going to put fresh antifreeze back in it and put a new heater control valve on it and drive it. Kyle

Lack of carbs? I got carbs

And yes, they're slow. Yes, mine would go 80, but getting there may've taken longer than a 2.5. They called me captain slow for a reason. Of course I was the one with the giant cooler in the back seat

I wonder if mine has to do with swapping the auto out? I've never taken the time to figure out what ratio the rear diff is. I think I'm going to put float bowl gaskets on the carbs I've got. I'd rather have adjustable jets, but run with what you've got, they have good shafts and are clean!

Kyle.

Did the 2000 come with Strombergs or SU's in the U.S. ?
