Brian, here are pics of the pulley boss and the O.D. of the oil seal which is an interference fit to the case opening. Also attached is a pic of the pulley-to-case distance. Hope this helps!

Re: Triumph Primary Drive

Now I see your issue. The pulley boss that the oil seal should seal on is too large to fit into the oil seal. It looks as it will barely fit into the case. It will indeed need to be turned down. Let...

Re: Triumph Primary Drive

The pulley should seat on the crank's splined shoulder just within the case as you stated, that's normal. The oil seal holder should only hold the seal on the face of the case, it need not do...

Re: Triumph Primary Drive

Both your issues are relatively easy to solve.

To safely fasten the pulley to the crank you'll need a stator rotor stud: E3114, and a stator rotor nut: E3977. Then you'll need to machine spacer...

Re: '52 Triumph Frame

This is an easy job for any competent machinist. I've made several of them. You don't really need to extend the stem if the top cup is made with minimal "rise".

Re: Triumph Pre Unit Clutch

Can you post a pic of what you have? If you are looking for a bearing, I doubt it is a BNR as they have the bearing built into the basket. but hey, you never know :D

Re: Triumph chain length - 6" stretch hardtail

Yes, a 130 link 530 chain will be long enough for a 6" stretch rear section. With a 20t front and a 43t rear you'll still trim off a few links.

Re: 66 Triump tough to find first gear

with this info, it sounds to me like your quadrant and camplate teeth are not meshing properly. Inspect both sets of teeth and perhaps paint the teeth with dychem to reveal the contact pattern on...

NEAT! I will remember that great little tip, especially if there is no compressed air available.

Re: Never ending Triumph Build

I rarely use adhesives on grips. And I say rarely because the grips I use (Biltwell Recoil) are thick rubber and fit super tight on the bars. The way I put them on is use compressed air in the end of...

Re: Never ending Triumph Build

I'll leave it up to someone else to say whether I'm knowledgeable or forceful....but the spring is not required. It was simply a quick/cheap way to mount the cap on the assembly line without it...

Re: Exhaust clamps

My source is JET-HOT :D Call them at 800.432.3379 and they will walk you through the process. I use the finish: "Extreme 1300, polished", if that helps. Here is a pic of a footrest bracket I made and...

Re: Exhaust clamps

Yup, it looks like polished aluminum. It does not blue with heat and if it gets scuffed, it can be polished back up with mother's polish. Also, it is warranted for life. I use this finish for every...

Re: Angry Monkey Motorcycles LONG bike Build thread

Still waiting on the engine. I had the engine builder send the alloy parts due to be polished back here so I could take them to be polished by Dan's polishing in Adamsville TN. Most of the machine...

Re: Best clutch upgrade for preunit Triumph?

Rob, I cannot say enough good things about the Alton too. It comes with a Podtronics rectifyer, and makes installing a BNR MUCH MUCH easier. It is recommended to run a battery though, which is not a...

Re: Best clutch upgrade for preunit Triumph?

There are two fatal issues with pre unit clutches: one is the single row primary chain. That puny chain is not up to the task of transmitting power to the clutch basket without a higher than normal...

Re: Gasoline resistant

Like Hylomar, it never actually "hardens" or "gells". After it is applied the acetone in the sealer dries out leaving a paste that is soluble only with acetone. I use Hylomar for Triumph Pre unit...
