I will give David a call. Since I put in a 2000 or 2500 gearbox without pulling it apart, it should have the smaller diameter extension. but I don't remember changing the carrier to a smaller diameter one. All getting very confusing. If I had just put on the 2000 box, the TR thrust bearing carrier would not have fitted properly. Is that right?

Correct but the standard thrust bearing will not fit the saloon extension, it is too big, so you must have swapped the extension. You do not need to pull the box apart but the box would have come with the extension so you may still have it some where. At least you would if you are like most of us and never throw any thing triumph away.
I do not support the standard 2500 plate as they are made for a diaphragm type pressure plate and have much less swept area than the one made for a spring pressure plate as used on the TR3. May work well but not one of my options.

Or you could just use the one specified for the Dolomite Sprint.

Same as the 2500.

This opens another can of wriggly things. Not sure what you mean by "not one of my options". I thought the 2000 solution was the option being recommended?

Sorry, should have made it clearer. I do not support a 2500 plate to be used with a standard TR spring type pressure plate as suggested by Peter. It may have worked fine for him but just not my option. Yes the HP of a TR6 is higher than a standard TR3 but the diaphragm pressure plate is much more efficient than a spring type.
The only difference between a 2500 plate and a TR4a/5/6 plate is the center spline size. The pressure plate is the same diaphragm type and part number across the range..

OK. That makes sense.

Nah! not the one I got. 215mm Sedan 224mm Sprint. (Might be different in Sydney)

Not sure why Sydney would be any different to any where else. I have not purchased a Sprint plate and can only go by the Excedy catalog that list the same kit for both the 2500 and the sprint.
