Thank you very much for the excellent quality pattern engine mounting plates you supplied for my Bantam. They are certainly an improvement over the original plates! Also thanks for the speedy delivery. It may be a while, but a photo of the plates in position will eventually be forthcoming!
Further to our telephone conversation, having measured the components could I point out that the machined slots in the aftermarket component are only 1.315″ across flats and the original equipment bush retainer were 1.275″ across flats. The problem being in the reproduction of the lock ring not the tool, something I would have thought a person who has rebuilt 340 sets of Triumph Forks could see.
I do not see that the problem lies with the tool, though a little dressing would overcome this, my offer of refund on return of the tool in resalable condition still stands.
I will amend the listing now I am aware of the problem, but I now see from other companies advertising similar tools that non-original Lock Rings are causing similar problems.
Good afternoon John just a line to say thank you very much for sending the wheel adjusters I ordered for my old Bullet. I made a small sleeve/washer to fill the right hand side but the left hand side was a straight fit.
Here some Photos of mounting bracket fixed to the bike. Strangely the fixing screw head for the front bracket hits the top of the electrical box. I don’t know if the original bolt had a thinner head, whether the rubber grommets available now are the incorrect height or the fixing point on my frame is the wrong shape? Anyway I made a spacer/sleeve to go under the grommet which drops the electrical box lid down enough to clear the bolt head.
