Just wondering if a sump cover fitted with a drain plug might be available for my '74 Trident?

I'm having more and more difficulty keeping the stock cover from leaking after each removal. A drain plug would make life soooooo much easier!

Thanks

They are availible but I'm not sure if any of the U.S vendors carry them, Mitch Klempf's probably your best bet or try a search over at Triples On Line, I recall them being discussed there.


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before

I will have new covers available shortly. Uses either the original inspection cap or mine that can be safety wired and have a magnet.

I just drilled & tapped a hole in the front part of the sump plate where there is no fins & fitted a short bolt with a copper washer. Works perfectly!

I have one on my T160, and it's well made.
