I'm sure Jon missed the part about the Triumph motor going into a BSA frame. The mounting points are not the same. Without extensive reworking, it won't fit.
Yes, I very much did, thanks Mike !!
The Triumph engine WILL NOT fit into the BSA OIF frame and the mounts aren't even close, not by a long shot. The center bottom mounts are way off in relation to each other as in inch to inches...not even close. Since that is a major issue, then won't even care if the front downtube mounts will even line up.
I have both frames on hand and BSA and Triumph cases on hand to verify and have looked at this in the past and determined that it is a big NO-GO.
Ok fair enough. I just realized that one frame oif says A65L on it. My other frame oif says T120 on it. So I have a BSA and a triumph frame. I can say just looking at them they both look identical.
I have a 69 650 bonneville and a 66 or 67 Tr6c engine. I would like to install the Tr6c in one of those frames since that engine is just about restored. I will measure both frames and the mounts and see what gives.
