I just found a very late Triumph TR5MX engine in Ebay. The number is HH (July 1973) and 75556. My engine is KJ (September 19749 and 75682 (so just 126 engines later). Also the numbers and letters at both engines look to made in the same way.
Have a look to the picture attached.

In general, you can't really test a rectifier/regulator unit - provided it is connected up correctly, it will either work or it won't. The red and black wire should definitely not have zero resistance between them!

hi, i thought the rectifier on my A65 was faulty so i got a wassell power module to replace it but now it does not seem to be charging. i used a multimeter to check connections and they were fine but when i checked the red and black leads,  pos and neg on the unit  for continuity it showed they are connected to each other , is that right?  any ideas would be appreciated

Hi, I hope this works. You can zoom in quite far on the original. I can email it if you want, just PM me your address.
OK, the IMG tags didn't work, but the link does I think.
Twins / Re: Where to fit an external oil filter on my A65L (pre OIF)

Hi Bob, thanks for the reply.

In a way, "things being in the way" is what I'd like so that the presence of the external filter is as hidden as possible.

Cheers, Charles

Yes, I'll change the oil. Interestingly, the previous owner fitted a tap just below the oil tank to stop oil seeping through a faulty non-return valve below when the engine is off.  I think I read in a classic bike mag or somewhere recently of something similar - maybe it's a common ruse. Just need to make sure I don't forget to turn the oil tap on before I start the bike!

I have just , saturday , bought a bsa gold star . The engine is in many pieces and need quite a lot of sorting . Not sure about the crankshaft ,may buy new one , but it is missing the piston . The bore looks good but is worn / bored / honed to 86.44 . Looks honed but may have been worn then honed . The liner measures in english 3.4035 at the top and 3.4055 at the bottom a rebore would only be 3.4065 that would give me 0003 thou clearance . I believe a +60 is 86.52 . Standard bore is 85mm and 60 though is 1.52mm so it should , In my mind , be doable  . What do you think .
