810cc Triumph project

We'll all this talk about the Triumphs I had to drag it out of the barn and get back to work on it!! Just have to make the forward controls, exhaust mounts the usuall odds & ends, pull the head off and polish, and sent out the dreaded box of parts to chromer. Wa-la scooter trash-- O-- and my favorite go through tranny and polish cases...........

The savior set ups did have there problems, they did not have the srings and axel braced enough the prevent flexing, but they were the more popular manufactor and marketed through AEE and that did give the plungers a bad rap. This has collars for the springs, a center post, and the axel plates allow getting the axel pretty ridged so theres not the side flexing of the Saviors. There was a Triumph on ebay last in Ma. with the savior rear end, see a lot of them on the old triumphs. Actual the paint has prisim metal flake in it, and does look better than the picture gets and it dosen't really look that light, the photos are about 3 shades lighter, guess its such a wierd color the digital camera dosn't know what to do with it. But if ya just don't like purple theres no way round it, its purple I don't like the way it sits, to high in frt. & mufflers d-m near drag. May try a set of TT pipes and see if balences better and bring em out under the trany and turn em paralel to the frame and mount real short mufflers next to frame. Thanks, take care.

the cases are 1954 per serial #. had to beef up the bearing boss area on primary side and changed to roller bearing crank mains intead of stock ball bearings, to handle the bigger thump from the 810cc pistons. The cases would have been for a 650cc orginally. As with any big piston setup machined out the top of the cases for the larger sleeves. Didn't even try to run the sprung hub at crank primary gear, I had trashed to many of those on other builds. Turned the crank to fit an ET alternator and used a later model primary cover. The heads are twin carb with extra large (for Triumph) Harley KR intake valves,ported and polished, I stayed with std. monoblock carbs to keep it rideable on the street. To really go fast could port it to 1 3/8" and run GP carbs, just don't stop to ideal. There was no donner engine, just swap meet parts and a little scrounging. Bought the jugs new. I last had it running 10yrs ago, then started redoing rear frame and but on the rear disc and wheel on, removed the oil filter and other changes.
