Not sure what the mechanical issues are with a Stag, apart from owner neglect. The problem with that Triumph engine was one thing: Coolant. Keep an eye on the hoses and rad leaks they were fine.
I'm a huge Triumph head: I've had numerous, from the basic but fun Heralds to an early Dolomite 1854, to TR6 to Sprints. The Dollys had the same rep with its slant four engine, but mine never had a sneeze of a problem.
Like th Stag, prefer the TR6. Still super cool IMHO.
