Just to let you guys who are scared to split the cases.
If you ask questions and research and watch the DVD from lowbrow. It’s not that big of a deal. I was scared to death to do it. But I’m actually glad I did it. Even the transmission isnt to bad.
Don’t get me wrong I’ve done some stupid things and had to redo things , like put seals in wrong. But check yourself and don’t rush. But I’m old now so I’m not in a hurry. I actually enjoy this. I’m lucky since I’ve always messed with cars and was somewhat mechanically inclined. Also get the Triumph service manual. But if I could only have one book it would be the parts book. That’s the dirty one in my garage.
Put everything in labeled plastic bags take pics and ask questions here. These guys are great.

Case are together waiting on a gear for the gearbox.
Now deciding if I’m going to strip the frame and repaint the frame or leave original. I like the original paint.
Kinda like it the way it is , but once you start it’s hard to stop.
