well not quite..... the back plates are different between the GT6 and TR6 (bolt circles to match the bell housing and different starter motor position/location) The TR6 bell housing is deeper than a GT6 as well to clear the clutch / throw out arm/ throw out bearing assy differences. I believe also the crank nose of the TR6 protrudes a bit more than a GT6 crank (to match the flywheel depth/offset) ptegler

im about to embark on building a 5 speed toyota transmission for a friend. its for his triumph GT6.
so, i want to be sure i get the correct or near correct bell housing. its all about the bell housing and nothing more.
a TR3 transmission will fit a TR4. a tr4 transmission will fit a TR6 according to recent posts.
a GT6 motor is the same block as a TR6 just smaller pistons and stroke to make it a 2000cc..??????
so i am assuming that a bell-housing from a TR will mount to a GT6 motor.
i can engineer all other parts, flywheel, clutch, throw out bearings and forks etc.
am i correct in the statements i made above?
