Got a another question. While I was looking on Ebay for engine parts I see some TR6 engines in red and some in black. My 72 engine that I have is red. What is the correct color for the 71 TR6 engine?

I think they were all semi-gloss black. Here's a related thread:

Like Henry Ford's Model Ts, "Black" is the only color!

From the factory, Triumph engines cane in ‘hides the oil leaks’ semi gloss Black.
Mix of satin and gloss black 50/50 seems about spot on.



Swatting the yellow jackets away from the Triumph apple of truth…
