Studs Bolts etc
« on: 06.07. 2014 14:49 »
Does anyone have a list of the studs and  bolts etc required to re build a plunger frame? I have a complete engine and gearbox, but need all the bolts, studs etc to rebuild my next project.

If there isn't one on the forum, or one known to exist... I will keep plodding and in a while, share the outcome of some slow research.

Thanks again.

Gavin.

All of the studs , nuts & bolts are listed in the parts books.
those that are a standard size will be listed in a table , usually at the end of the book called, oddly enough "Standard bolt sizes"
You can download and print out a BSA / Triumph fastener list from http://stainlessbits.com/link12.html.
Print it out so you can write notes on pages were applicable and also because it is orphaned from a retailer who went out of business and will eventually disappear.

Thanks Guys, I have actually been onto these and other sites. The shortcut I was checking out... is if anyone has totaled up the number of each type of stud, bolt etc  needed to rebuild a plunger frame?

That's the job I am doing at present... lovely chilly winter evenings stuff ... so that I can put an order in for all the fastening required. The tempting alternative is to estimate and put in an order and then pay more freight for a second... and maybe subsequent order or 3.

I know that in 12 months time I will look back and deeply appreciate the effort to get all the right wire to tie it up with.

 Gav, I went through this and may have a 'list', I know I wrote stuff down but need to have a dig.

 Actually bought a stainless set that should have done the job, but wasn't complete and I could in fact only use half of those- not good economy.
 Having said that, I just re-read yours and realise you want for the whole bike...yeah?
 I was thinking just the engine/mountings...so mine is all a bit abnormal anyways, so maybe not a lot of help.
Started building in about 1977/8 a on average '52 A10 -built from bits 'n pieces never resto intended -maybe 'personalised'
Have a '74 850T Moto Guzzi since '92-best thing I ever bought doesn't need a kickstart 'cos it bump starts sooooooooo(mostly) easy

Like you I also need a full set of nuts bolts etc for my plunger frame and have done the same investigation, with same result, as you.
I was also going to compile a list so look forward to your end result, as I'm sure others will find it very useful also.
I will send you a P.M
