I have been asked to make a set of engine plates to fit a unit 650 engine into a featherbed. Looking online the front plates are straight forward enough, but there seems to be two different types of rears. One type runs under the bottom and back of the gearbox to the large mounting lug beneath the engine and bolts onto the central crosspiece on the frame.

The second type of plates bolt onto the back of the crankcase at the rear of the primary drive case on one side, and onto the inner gearbox cover on the other, both plates bolting to the gusset plates on the frame.

Whats the advantages of each type ? I was going to use the second type, as it would leave room to house the battery at the back of the gearbox.

If the engine doesn’t fall out, an owner will never know the difference between the two patterns.

Hi Bon, I have never built a Triton but could the different plates be between a wideline or slimline frame. I notice some featherbeds do not have mounting lugs half way along the bottom tube? The other thing is plates that are mounted to the out side would allow the rear sets to bolt on to them, which is what I did when I cut some dural plates for a standard oil in frame T140. Cheers Steve.

Thanks all. I actually spotted a set on eBay and with no other bids, i got them for less than £20. They were a bit scruffy, but they cleaned up lovely with some scotchbright. I do not mind not having a middle bracket as they can be fabbed up and welded on easy enough.

I don't think they are centre stand lugs as they are above the tubes, cheers Steve
