 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?
