The whole kit is is being sold all separately in at least 5 different auctions- head - valve covers - cylinders+pistons - carbs - exhaust. Makes it kinda stressful for the bidders I bet.

Not much good without the cylinder. It does not fit any Triumph cylinder. Stock valves are 7mm without hard chrome or black diamond coating. You should change to XR200 valves with 5.5mm stems.
Also missing the exhaust clamps specific to the head on this auction:

Cylinder and pistons here:

The case holes at the tappet blocks have to be elongated because the tappet blocks tilt outward rather than inward on the stock Triumph.
I believe these were before Nourish. I think Westlake manufactured these for Rickman. After Rickman went out of business Westlake put their name on the valve covers.
Currently, 12/3, bidding on all parts up to $1858.54.

Ah, Nick, to the point as always ! A n d , yes, D Madigan. Nourish offered a kit that would " bolt on " to T140. Thats how I would have liked go on my " longest rebuild in history ". Shortage of shekals, dontcha know !
By the way, WESLAKE, not WesTlake !

Yes, sorry, no "t". The next city over is Westlake so that keeps permeating my thinking.
Not familiar with the Norish version but I know something about the Rickman as I have one.

and it will not fit a T140 cylinder unless you can machine the front and rear of the cylinder for the bolts from below.
Weslake's 5 valve 1000cc V twin:

with the time honored direct drive gearbox output sprocket behind the clutch.
