I'm rebuilding a 1971 T120. Does this motor require the rotary breather valve disc and spring that usually goes in the left case inlet cam bushing? One was not installed when I disassembled the motor.

No. The engine breaths through the crank end into the primary case and out a tube to rear of the bike.

FWIW,it breaths through the main bearing on the primary side due to the seal not being there. Repeat,No seal on the crank. Jack

Thanks! That helps a lot too. This is my first Triumph build and I've been going off the Four Aces vid, a Haynes manual, and the factory parts book.

I have a '70 TR6R and all of the books show a breather, but it doesn't have one. Inside the "drive side" case you'll notice 3 or is it 4 small holes by the cylinder wall. It breathes there, plus the main bearing. So, you can sleep tonight - lol.
