T25 drive side crankshaft bearing

So the marks on the roller bearing I pulled out of the casing were SKF 3NU05. Two flanges on outer ring with pressed steel cage. It appears to be an SKF number that has been retired. The new SKF number would be something like NU305J (J for steel cage). Going through various posts I have seen mention...

Re: T25/B25 Bearing and Seal Equivalents

Hi
I was more interested in technical cross references and sizes and not a commercial enquiry which is why I posted under Tech.
Thanks

T25/B25 Bearing and Seal Equivalents

So I'm in the process of sourcing parts for my T25 engine rebuild and am looking at the various bearings and seals needed for the job. I have searched numerous posts on the site for equivalents for items in the spares lists. ( eg Hoffman brngs). Seals are more complicated as I have found fewer refer...

Didn't want to sand blast the complete frame so i used my grinder with wire brush disk to remove rust from the nasty areas and chemical stripper and wire brush for all the other black and silver bits, mudguards and tank. Tank got a good c...

Re: T 140 tank on B25/T25

Jeff/Steve Thanks for the info. I expected that surgery would be required to clear the oil filler. The seat does project back a way too. Something to think about. I was thinking of modifying the seat from the standard design. The link takes me to what appears to be three differently priced versions ...

T 140 tank on B25/T25

I'm working on my '71 T25 project bike. Looking to find a B50 engine to replace the 250 motor. The bike will be road ridden. I dont plan to keep the original Triumph tank and like the look of the European T140 tank. There is a nice picture of Rick Fergusons racing B50 on this site which has the T140...

Re: T 25 Project

Hi Tom

November '70 according to the search tool on this site. A '71 model year perhaps.

I'll have a look at EV. I have also contacted Britcycle in Wolfville.

Thanks

Re: T 25 Project

So I started dismantling today and took the top end off. Piston would not move in the bore so I applied liquid wrench and a little persuasion with a wooden mallet and dowel. Rust in the bore, some grooving. Weld repair to the bottom of the cylinder liner. Small end bushing seems to have been imprope...
