Hi everyone, I am a Triumph BSA owner/fan for over 40 years! favourite was a Triumph 500RR Daytona. Anyway, I have just acquired most of a 1967 B44 roadster and the front forks need rebuilding; is there a post, link or other connection to a pictoral or step by step strip down? Fork rebuild is one thing I have never had to do in all my biking years. I will post a piccie of the bits later. Thanks! beerchug

On my website www.bsaunitsingles.com

There are factory workshop manuals that detail the steps in rebuilding forks like yours. The manuals are available for free download.

http://www.bsaunitsingles.com/owners_repair_manuals.htm

Either the Victor Series Workshop manual or the B44 B25 Workshop manual have the fork re-build instructions and diagrams for your forks.

Some special tools are needed, like the chrome fork seal removal tool. Along with a good vise and a butane torch to help loosen up stuck parts. A big pipe wrench may be needed but if used on the chrome seal holders that will be the end of them. You probably don't have to worry about "careful" use on the stanchion tubes if your forks are seized up because that means the stanchions are either bent or rusty and will need to be replaced anyway. Releasing the allen bolt that holds the damper tubes to the fork slider bottom can be difficult at times. This will be necessary for a complete inspection and re-build.
