Triumph TR6 Uprated Ignition
Uprated Contact Set
Fitted with an uprated 32oz. spring, this contact set is most suitable for fast road or competition use. It will fit all 6 cylinder distributors covered by this catalogue.
Silicone High Tension Lead Set
Changing High Tension Leads is often overlooked during routine servicing. The core of an H.T. Lead can break down after prolonged use, leading to less than satisfactory performance. Changing the H.T. leads will ensure the spark plugs are receiving the maximum energy possible, providing that the rest of the ignition system is in good condition, creating the strongest spark.
We stock standard lead sets as listed in the previous section or Silicone High Performance Leads listed here. The Silicone Leads transmit greater energy to the spark plug creating a stronger spark. Also, the silicone insulation is able to withstand higher temperatures and damp ingress, improving reliability. These leads are recommended for any application.
Spark Plugs should be replaced a regular service intervals. Our high performance spark plugs are of a high quality, giving good performance over a wide operating temperature range, a strong spark and long life.
Lumenition Optronic Ignition System
Lumenition Optronic Ignition Kits are well known as being among the finest after-market electronic ignition systems available. Installation requires a distributor adaptor kit, comprising a chopper and hardware, and a power module with optical switch: the optical switch and chopper fit into the distributor replacing points and condenser, the power module is an electronic device which receives a pulse from the optical trigger and switches the coil. The optical trigger eliminates contact bounce, arcing mechanical wear and spark splatter, reducing maintenance and increasing reliability. With minimal wiring and modifications this kit is very discreet. The Performance Kit also includes the coil and power module.
Lumenition Magnetronic Ignition System
Designed as a budget electronic conversion for owners requiring the original look. All parts are neatly contained within the distributor unit. The system utilises the proven ‘Hall Effect’ magnetic pick-up and a unique triggering device. These are no touching or wearing components, ensuring timing will remain accurate once installed
If you want improved ignition performance, the sports coil is for you. 40,000 volt output gives more reliable starting power, and greater performance at high rpm.
The 6 volt (ballasted) coil system was introduced on CR/CF models to assist with cold starting in seriously cold winter spells and climates (as the amperage from the coil is doubled).
For an even more generous spark the 6 volt sports coil can be substituted here.
For those who wish to eliminate the ballasted system and return to a 12 volt coil system, the ballast resistor can be bypassed by running a suitable grade wire from the fuse box straight to the coil, having removed the existing coil feed (from the ballast resistor). Fuse box outlet terminal number one should be used as on earlier applications.
