Leslie Thiess had a fair bit to do with this. AMI assembled Triumphs early on, and Ramblers before the Toyota connection.
    The P76, and as far as I know, the X6, had no connection with AMI, but were built at Leyland's Zetland plant in Sydney.
    I think it was later than 1968 when Toyota took control. AMI certainly assembled coronas and Toyota first bought York Motors' (A Leyland Australia and Toyota Distributer) Share. Leyland then sold their share when they needed the dollars to help fill the financial black hole the P76 was causing. At one stage Leyland considered putting the Triumph 2500 into full production but went with the P76 instead.

    Depends what is meant by "controlling interest". It was 1968, but they took 50% in 1971. P76 production began in1973.

    Anyway, the poor OP is no doubt wondering what happened to his thread about red motors and Series trucks.

I have heard of a spigot bearing that is stopping it from fitting? Please help

    Need to check a couple of things.

    Measure the diameter of the spigot on the end of the gearbox shaft, and the diameter of the bush in the centre of the flywheel - they should match, with the shaft slightly smaller. Possible problems are a burr on either part or there is a bush stuck on the spigot, or wrong bush. Ideally need inside and outside calipers to measure this.

    Check that the clutch plate easily slides on the shaft - wrong plate?

    The plate needs to be the right way round, and correctly centred using a suitable alignment tool.

    If all this checks out, a big help is to temporarily replace three of the bell housing to flywheel housing studs with long bolts with the heads cut off. This will ensure everything is correctly aligned before you get to aligning the bits you can't see!
