Triumph engine rebuild DVD's

Post by Prof » Wed May 12, 2010 5:58 pm

Copied across from another thread. thanks Ben...

Have a look at those dvd's from http://www.lowbrowcustoms.com

They are really great dvds on how to rebuild the Triumph motor.

Very important with every Triumph motor, clean out the sludge trap.

If you don't do it and it is blocked your motor will die/seize and all your hard will be for nothing.

Was lent Wes Whites, trumpy rebuild dvd, was mightly impressed, sometimes the unknown tricks us into thinking itd be too hard, if these dvd's do anything they remind us that there just engines....

While it is by no means as detailed as the commercial DVD's, there is some nice clips on You tube for free.

This guy in particular shows most of a unit TR6 rebuild in separate clips
this is the one related to the sludge trap.(replacing the slotted plug with a hex type is a must)

I don't get the logic behind him polishing cam journals, but he seems to do a lot of engine rebuilds so he must know what he is doing.

The Les White/Four Aces DVD is excellent in my opinion


Cheers

p.s Tyler at Lowbrow is a great guy (I remember when his product lineup was a couple of T shirts and some hot rod stickers) but I believe in supporting the local guy, so without advertising I will just say that there is an Australian guy importing these DVD's and selling them for under 40 bucks, if you were interested you could probably find a link to his online store by looking up these DVD's on Ebay

That's good to know, if the local guy is on this forum that's better still

I'll have to ask if he has any ride wrench and repeat shirts, mine are just about knackered

When you have a bike like mine (67 Triumph Trophy), you need all the mechanical help you can get, the problem is I'm not joking, just ask any Old bike owner.

You have to know how to fix it on the side of the road or just be honest enough to give up and get a lift home, Doh & Doh for times I have had to do this.

So after my last long ride, I have had electrical issues, I have tried many times now to fix it and sometimes you think you have. I know I don't have all the knowledge to fix this issue.

So when I saw that Triumph 102 was due to be released, I placed my order, so far I have managed to watch only some of the DVD, as it is a long one and Wes White gives a lot of info on:

Electrical: Understanding What You Have
Troubleshooting your Electrical System
How-To Wiring & Electrical Tips
Carburetors: Amal, Mikuni & JRC
Rebuilding Your Front End
Mixing & Matching Front End Parts
Rebuilding a Clutch Center
Cam Bushing Installation and Reaming

After watching the electrical components I feel more prepared and confident to give it a go, I mean it looks easy and I now know a little bit more about my bike, isn't this what it's about.

I can't afford to pay someone to do it, I own it, I ride it and I fix it.

Any way if you own an old Triumph I highly recommend watching this DVD and all the others by Wes White.

If I can give it a go others can too.

I don't have English 102, but I have the Triumph Engine Rebuild , English 101 and The Harbor Town Bobber Documentary, I just bought another set for a mate of mine who cant get on the net.

I'm more than happy to lend my copies out to anyone who is interested, send me a message and I'll throw them in a post pack as long as I get them back.

I certainly didn't mean to imply anything negative about Lowbrow, I'm sure Tyler & Wes makes some well earned coin on every copy that is sold, regardless of its bought from a stockist or reseller. I just try to buy local where possible.

Cheers
