Experimental Rotary Throttle

Another important part of Triumph's superb experimental and development history has recently been donated to our museum. This time we are indebted to Mr Peter Clarke formerly of the Triumph competitions and experimental departments.

This is an experimental rotary throttle body, we believe Ray Henderson (head of experimental) may have had a hand in its conception and design, and indeed based on Ray's work Rover later patented the idea.

You can see from one of the pictures that we have set the throttles half open/closed so you get an idea of its operation, simple and uncomplicated, and way ahead in conception.
