Conversion To Unleaded

Triumph owners have a choice of 3 options:

1) Use the so-called Lead Replacement Petrol (LRP) and hope for the best but see here

2) Use a fuel additive. See here

3) Have the vehicle converted to run on unleaded petrol. See below:

ALL IN COST OF CONVERSION:

  • SPITFIRE/HERALD 648
  • DOLOMITE 1300/1500/TOLEDO 698
  • DOLOMITE 1850/TR7 1430
  • SPRINT 1470
  • VITESSE/GT6 974
  • TR4/5/6/2000/2500 ON CARBS 1290
  • TR5/6/2500 ON INJECTION 1570

All prices include parts & labour but not VAT

Conversion includes fitment of: Fully rebuilt cylinder head c/w valves & springs, full gasket replacement, replacement of spark plugs, oil & oil filter, plus necessary timing adjustments.

Dolomite 1850, Sprint & TR7 are also fitted with replacement camshaft & followers.

The conversion takes from between half a day to a full day depending on model. Customers are very welcome to wait in out foyer, shop in Woolwich town centre which is a short walk away, or alternatively the West End is a 25 minute train ride away.

Conversion to unleaded is only done once – why not have it done professionally by experts with many Triumph conversions behind them. The sooner the inevitable operation is performed the sooner you can start pocketing the petrol price difference.
