Taken as a whole, the Triumph TR2s and TR3s representone of the most successful sports car designs in history; so successful that, by the early nineteen-sixties, they had helped tomake Standard Triumph the second-best selling imported carmarque in the United States. During the late nineteen-fiftiesand early nineteen-sixties, countless fledgling race driversgained their early experience in these machines. Among themwas three-time World Champion Jim Clark, who owned one ofthe first-if not the very first-TR3 in Scotland.Today, in the nineteen-seventies, TR2s and TR3s are aseagerly sought after as they were twenty years ago when thecars were in production. This should not be surprising sincethere has never been a time during those twenty years whenTR2s and TR3s were not proving their worth. In 1965, fully tenyears after the TR2 was discontinued and almost five yearsafter the last TR3 had been built, the cars remained highlycompetitive in racing. In that year, the Sports Car Club ofAmerica's U.S. F-Production Championship was won byBrian Fuerstenau in a TR3-with Lee Midgely's TR2 solidly insecond place.Wise collectors began to acquire TR2s and TR3s even beforetheir long and successful history had been written on the racetrack. (As recently as 1975 a TR3 made the field for The Chamn event that deterpion Spark Plug Road a c i Classic-anmines the ultimate standings in U.S. amateur road racing.) In1970, at a time when the newest TR3 was on the verge ofbecoming a ten-year-old relic, well-maintained examples of itspredecessor, the TR2, were already being purchased by collectors for more than the cars had cost when new. The prices offully restored TR3s have since begun to follow suit and will undoubtedly continue to rise as fewer examples of the typebecome available on the open market.This is as it should be; the TIP2 and TR3 are landmarks inthe evolution of the sports car. Before the TR2 arrived on theautomotive scene, enthusiasts of limited means had very fewcars from which to choose. The TR3 was a windfall particularly to sports car-starved Americans who, in buying a Triumph,could acquire 100-mph capability at a cost little greater thanthat required to obtain an 80-mph MG.TF.Because the value of TR2 and TR3 sports cars is increasing,it is impossible to overstate the importance of correctmaintenance and repair. Unfortunately, original workshopmanuals and owner's manuals have, since the assimilation ofStandard Triumph by British Leyland Motors, become virtually. impossibleto obtain. Indeed, original books are now collec.tor's items in their own right. N o vintage Triumph enthusiastwould choose to risk one by placing it on an oil-stainedworkbench or on a garage floor! A new, readily available andeasily replaceable manual that duplicates the orginal manuals'contents is clearly needed.This Manual has been compiled in order to meet that need,thereby supplying complete, accurate, and comprehensivemaintenance and repair data to both car owners and professional mechanics. The Driver's Instruction Book, which comprises the first part of this Manual, is similar to the handbookprovided with every new TR3. The Service Instruction Manual,which comprises the second-andlargest-portionof thisManual, is the official factory manual and was originally intended for use by dealer service departments. Owners of TR3sand the so-called TR3A or TR3B model will find it informativeto read the Foreword to the TR3 Supplement, which appearson page 419.Assembly work on small, highly-tuned machines such as theTriumph sports cars must be carried out with greater precisionthan is commonly practiced on large American cars. Particularemphasis must be given to the proper use of torque wrenchesand to strict adherence to the tightening torque specificationswhich are given in this Manual. A fastener that is too tight canbe worse than one that is too loose-especially on a lightweightsports car. Stretched or broken bolts and distorted parts, whichresult from overtightening by musclebound mechanics, becomea serious concern where the precision fitting of light alloy andthin-wall iron castings is involved.The importance of cleanliness cannot be overemphasized.Under no circumstances should an engine or gearbox berepaired on the ground or on a garage floor. Thoroughly cleanthe exteriors of major components prior to disassembly inorder to keep road dirt and other grime out of the workingparts. N o more than a pinch of abrasive dust in a gearbox cancause rapid failure of the synchronizers and bearings.During the final assembly of an engine or gearbox, thecleaned parts should be laid out on a clean workbench that hasbeen covered with clean sheets of new cardboard or wrappingpaper. The engine or gearbox itself, if not mounted on a specialstand, should likewise be placed on a clean workbench. Sandpapering, valve grinding, or the use of bench grinders shouldnot be permitted near the area where final assembly is takingplace. If assembly cannot be completed in a day, enclose thepartially-assembled engine or gearbox in a large plasticbag-such as a new trash bag or a dry cleaner's garment returnbag-so that dust and dirt will be excluded until assemblywork resumes.By observing these precautions during the maintenance,repair, or restoration of your TR2 or TR3, you will be preserving the value and the life of a car that is rapidly becoming oneof the classics among post-World War I1 sports cars. If at anytime you lack the skills, special equipment, tools, or workshopfacilities for making repairs as they are described in thisManual, we suggest you leave such repairs to an AuthorizedDealer or other qualified shop.

FOREWORDThe vehicle has been designed so that a minimum of attention is required tokeep it in satisfactory running order. There are, however, certain maintenanceoperations which must be undertaken regularly, and the object of this instructionbook is to assist even the non-technical owner to understand the variousoperations required, and so ensure that the vehicle receives regular and correctattention.If in any doubt about the vehicle's performance the owner should at onceconsult a Triumph dealer, preferably the one from whom the car was purchased.Triumph dealers are very carefully selected and are suitably equipped to givesatisfactory and expert after sales service.There is a Service School at the factory at which our dealers' representativesacquire a first hand knowledge of up-to-date service procedure. Valuableinformation is given regarding special methods and equipment which greatlyassists in getting the various operations performed more expeditiously.SPARE PARTS SERVICETo ensure the best possible service on replacement parts it is important tonote the following points :(a) The policy of the Triumph Motor Company is not to supply spareparts direct to the general public, but all supplies are directed throughDistributors who, in turn, will supply their Dealers. The name andaddress of the Distributors and Dealers can be obtained from theService and Spares Directory included with each motor vehicle.(b) It is recommended that only C6Stanparts" (i.e., genuine Standard/Triumph spare parts) are used, only these carry a guarantee.Experience gained by the manufacturers ensures that only highestquality material is used and the strictest accuracy maintained inmanufacture.(c) If in doubt about a particular part required, it is always advisable togive the vehicle commission number and engine number, in additionto the fullest description possible.THE STANDARD CAR REVIEW is a journal published monthly whichgives authentic information regarding the activities and products of TheStandard & Triumph Motor Co. Ltd. It is obtainable from most Triumphdealers. Please write to the Publicity Department for a free specimenCOPY.Owners of this model who wish to be kept informed of modifications andcompetition tuning hints should register as a member of the Triumph SportsOwners' Association ; details are given in the booklet enclosed with thisliterature, or apply to the Publicity Dept., Triumph Motor Co. (1945) Ltd.,Canley, Coventry, for a copy of the book, together with enrolment form.The Company reserves the right, on the sale of any vehicle, to make beforedelivery, without notice, alterations to or departures from the specification,design or equipment, detailed, described or illustrated in this or otherCompany publications.3SPORTS CAR
