What will you do next? Wheels or framework? Do you have any dusters?

still trying to find a solution for the grease caps that don't fit because the rimmer stub axles are 1/4 in too long. Any ideas of caps with same diameter but deeper 'dome'?

For now the old steelies will go on (spits) and i will probly keep them (tidy up a bit, new rubber) to keep the cost down, and upgrade them to minilites with 185 /70 R13 dunlop D83J's later.

Also, I've done engineering calcs on the herald seat runners and 2mm 6xxx aluminium and that will be fine for floors. The orig floor was 1mm steel, so that will do too, and is a cheaper option as i'll be able to cut fold and weld them myself (I think) and if i stuff it or it looks crap revert to the original (expensive) plan of getting aluminium cnc cut and folded and welded professionally. Quote for that was $300 (AUD) per side about a year ago so could be more.

Bye for now.

Looking good 1iTim, its just a big boys Meccano kit.

Do you have any photos of the problem you have with the hub grease caps and the Rimmer stub axles to help me understand exactly what the issue is.

here you go thanks swifty, kind of blurry and too close but hopefully you can get the idea.


heres a pic of the cap to the side:


it does not seat as the castle nut hits the dome of the cap.
any other TR stuff that will fit? or MG? or trailer ones...

1iTim have you tried posting the question on one of the triumph forums, i find www.club.triumph.org.uk/ is one of the good sites, the guys on there have the knowledge and are keen to help.

Well, open to suggestions, but not planning anything. I had it running pretty sweetly befpr tear down began. If i was inclined id do the head nice flow work and a pair or 1.25s, i have 1" su s at the mo, ddidnt know they went that small!. Exhaust headers would be nice but too pricey for now. I'll get a new pipe from manifold back in 1.5 inch, at present is 1.125 or somethin insanely small.
Its a 1296 from america with a 1147 head. I think the pump is flowing too much fuel, but not certain.

Thx, T

ok ladies and gents a couple of questions about how to measure the carbs specification. My 6port head has intake holes 1.25 inches in diameter, but the carb throats are 1.05. the intake manifold, on the head side, has sleeves that go inside the manifold smoothly into a nice matching rebate in the manifold, and these sleeves slot neatly into the head, but there is no rebate or step that these sleeves butt up to, creating a sharp expansion inside the head from 1.05 to 1.25 inches.

Is this set up called a 1.25 because thats the size of the head outer port? or would a 1.25 (1 1/4) be a measurement across the outer (air box side) throat of the carby (meaning i have twin H1s)?

If i do get some 1.25's will they have a larger 1.45 inch sleeve that is meant to slot into the head? I will avoid anything that involves machining the head.

i'm guessing that someone bought a 1300 short block and just bolted everything from the original engine onto it... If thats the case what are the things i need to look out for?

your input is valued...

Got an adapter for my oil filter. Should only be needed on 948's but my engine number indicates a 1300. Odd.
