Andy.........where did you find the Repair Time Schedule? Sounds like a
great resource or interesting reading.....
Larry..........you can save about 2 - 3 hours of shop labor if they'll let
you pull/reinstall the interior yourself. Pretty easy to do but time
consuming. The great unknown with our cars is how easily they come apart
unless you've taken them apart already. Frozen/stripped bolts are
commonplace and that adds to the time factor. Some guys can pull the tranny
without dropping the exhaust but my exhaust comes apart easily so I always
drop it....... the rear tranny mount is tough to get at with the exhaust in
Pulling the tranny usually turns into a "while I'm in there I might as well"
scenario...........i.e. new clutch, new t/o bearing, pin the clutch fork,
resurface & balance flywheel, new tranny seals etc.

If it helps at all, my Triumph "Repair Time Schedule" shows 6.3 hours for
""Clutch assembly and/or plate. Replace" -- same for TR4A, TR5PI and TR6PI
(those are the relevant sections in my copy)!

Just trying to get a ballpark figure for a clutch replacement on a TR6?
