Do TR6 drums fit GT/GTE with Girling rears?

There’s nothing wrong with running large spacers to set the offset?

Do TR6 drums fit GT/GTE with Girling rears?

With the wider axle though, don’t you have oodles of room inboard if you had a better offset wheel?

Do TR6 drums fit GT/GTE with Girling rears?

So lots of non-standard parts, all needing to occupy the same space :D

How much clearance do you have to the inside of the arch?

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Ah, don’t forget that KOV3F had an interesting history.

Surely we would have photos if a GTE back end was really ever fitted to a coupe?

FTD565C is the car we discussed a few pages ago - owner is on Facebook and it’s really FTO565C.

OR

The pic showing FTD in primer is correct and they ARE two different cars?

Yes your right David , when I fitted 15 inch PA rims to my old V8 coupe they didn’t but up and had to fit this spacers .
presumably that’s why they were supplied with spacers, and not simply for aesthetic reasons as I thought?

The Girling brakes are concave (same as MGB Salisbury axle) but the Lockheed for 6a on are convex. As the same wheels fit either model (with flat faces), I presume it doesn’t matter as the clamping force on the studs is the same? What wheels are you trying to fit that have such a large centre surface?

SB 7/85 (one of a series regarding water ingress) they’re called “drain plates” to stop water being trapped. To be retrofitted.
