An invaluable pair of DVDs ideal for anyone wishing to work on their pre-unit Triumph. These are original, copyrighted DVDs, prepared by Hughie Hancox.
They are designed to help the home enthusiast go through the total strip and rebuild of Triumph pre-unit engines from 1946 to 1962.
The techniques shown in this video can be applied to most Triumph 500cc & 650cc pre-unit engines. You will need additional information - tappet clearances, torque settings etc for your particular model from the relevant workshop manual.
Hughie Hancox started at Triumph in 1953 as a trainee fitter in the Service Repair Shop, moved to the experimental dept in 1958 and then in 1960 he became a Triumph Tester. He remained at Triumph right up to 1973 when he decided to leave. However, it was on his first day in the Service Repair Dept in 1953 he was told by his manager that "there are three ways to do the job; the right way, the wrong way, and the Triumph way"
This video is not intended to replace the traditional workshop manual. Rather, it supplements the manual by demonstrating the methods and techniques that cannot be effectively conveyed with the printed word or with still photographs. An appropriate workshop manual is still recommended to provide the technical information and specifications relating to your particular model.
