Hi I recently purchased a 1972 TR6R and realised the gearbox has the leaf spring, I will be rebuilding the engine from the sludge trap up and would like to do the gearbox leaf to plunger conversion while I am at it.

Does anyone know where I can rent the jig for this conversion, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Contact Michael to arrange for use of the kit.
Here is the text of my contact with him:
"Hi Michael, I would like to have a go with the plunger conversion kit. Add my name to the list please. Fill me in on how the deposit and any other expenses are handled.
Thanks"

Michael's reply:
"send me an email and will reply with a doc file that will cover everything."

The kit is an amazing piece. Work carefully and it will be easy and precise.

You don't need a jig, just a drill, steady hand, a bit of nerve and a 5/8 UNF tap. Put the camplate in and line up with that. The alloy will let you make corrections as you go. Don't forget to recess the top of the thread.

I have used Buckshot's (Michael) jig several times. It's well thought out and made. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately my nerve and steady hand are lacking.

For some reason I believe that tool disappeared some time ago. It's not that hard to do by hand. It's a Triumph not a rocket to the moon.
Do not use a 5/8 bit for a 5/8 tap. I just had to order a 5/8 tap for work. The bit is like 3/32 smaller. Mine was done with the engine still in the bike, in the rain, in a muddy back yard.

I have tried to contact to him too. I noticed that he has not been on the forum since March 2021. I hope all is with him
