I have recently scanned the Triumph Service Training Notes - Lucas Petrol Injection which covers the TR5, TR6, 2.5PI saloon and 2.5PI estate. This is a guide to the maintenance and servicing of the Lucas Petrol Injection systems fitted to various Triumph cars. I am hosting a copy on my website.

We went to Huntingdon to see a parade of Lola racing cars run from their factory to the marketplace. This T70 Lemans racing car was driven on the parade by Sir John Surtess. It was a great sight and very loud.
I was surprised to see Lola have made some more modest cars such as this one. The Lola Mk1 a 1100cc car built in 1958.

I saw this bike at the Thoresby show today. I wonder if the 2.3 inline 3 would fit in a Vitesse/Herald.
Engine is a Liquid-cooled, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder with a Capacity of 2,294cc
According the manufacturer website it has Maximum Power of 106bhp @ 5,400 rpm and Maximum Torque of 154ft.lbf @ 2,025 rpm
Not a lot of progress in 40 years then. So it turns out not have any more power than the Vitesse. Why bother.

Lucas Girling Equipment and Service Parts - Standard Triumph 1969
Catching up with the Canley Classics blog I saw mention of the 4 wheel "Pony" gearboxes for sale.
Included in this parts booklet is a section listing parts for the "Pony". I bet it puzzled people back then and it even odder now.

I normally logon to my blog to update it - but have found some new software that may make things easier.
Seems like an age since I last posted anything here. Must try harder.
Have booked a place for a trackday at Cadwell Park on 6 May so will get to use my new helmet. Will be my first track day ever so have also booked some instruction.
