You need to know what type of steel it is,, if low carbor you will need to case harden

Sweet little bike richbob. My first Triumph was a 49 with a 1956 6T engine.

Absolutely beautiful bike. Is the tinware a muted green, like Francis Beart's old Nortons, or a more intense color as suggested in the later photographs? (Might be my old computer reading the color inexactly).

Cheers for the compliments.
Green is like pastel not blingy like in professional pics.(photo mate has some funky settings makes everything pop)
My pushrod end came off with like an oil suction pop maybe this was cause of tappet wear?
Should have it buttoned up today.

got a couple of bikes that smoke a little, guides and bores ok, so was interested how your honeing worked out?

My two may have been put together with a little too much assembly oil that I think may have glazed the bore, I thought that was the way at the time: feck!.

The pastel green is a little too much '50's Great Britain' for me but hey ho it's your ride and everything else is a credit to you, Sweet little Triumph you have there.

Well so far so good on both bikes
Honer said he said hone is 80 to 120ish (but he uses that on all older type engines,cars,tractors,static motors)
I washed bore in soapy water wiped a tiny smear of oil on bottom lip of skirt with finger.
Then started and rode hard through gears(kicked pulled clutch and off no dilly dallying)
