The gearbox refurb parts have been ordered, if anyone thinks of anything obvious I've missed (or if I've ordered the wrong parts) I still have time to add to the order.

Tools:
Triumph Clutch Hub Removal Tool from Tri Supply "suitable for all models of Triumph motorcycles." - this sounds universal for UNF/CEI so should work.
https://www.trisupply.co.uk/product/triumph-clutch-parts-hub-removal-tool/
Triumph Twins clutch locking plate, Models up to 1987 OEM: 61-3768

Parts:
500/650cc (1963-73) Gearbox High gear bearing OEM: 57-0448, A2-316,68-0023,04-0098
Circlip To Retain High Gear GB1 OE Code: 70-0489
Pre Unit 4 Speed Gearbox Oil Seal OEM: 57-0946
Clutch Spring (x4), 5 plate, pre-unit OE Code: 57-0999
Primary drive chain 1/2'' x 5/16'' Links: 70

Now it's just a case of waiting.... ohno

For anyone wondering why this had gone quiet, it has taken just over 2 months for the parcel of rebuild parts to reach me from the UK.
5 days from UK to Southern Europe, then 2 months stuck in customs awaiting clearance. Shipping from UK to Europe since Brexit is a nightmare thumbsdown

The new clutch hub puller worked fine and the gearbox was soon stripped and removed.
Parts have been cleaned, now I'm just trying to check a few things before I put it back together.

I've started a thread in the Triumph section with gearbox photos and questions ... https://www.britbike.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/854453#Post854453

Bought a few spares from the UK for the BSA over a month ago, no sign of them at all. It used to take 2-3 days to get spares here.

^ @bon my parcel from the UK finally arrived, it took 2 months (+ a few extra days) - a lot different to the 5-7 days similar parcels were taking last year.
Hope your delivery reaches you ok,

I'm now on first name terms with most of the staff at the courier who shipped it including the managing director. He has an ongoing complaint with EU customs about their poor performance and is using my case as an example of the delays and frustration caused by the additional "Importing into the EU" paperwork. The courier have been great, shame the EU customs didn't send me any request for payment - then ignored requests from the courier to send copies to me and the direct to the courier. End result was the courier finally got a copy of the customs charges that were due and paid them on my behalf.

The new system for shipping parts UK-to-EU sucks !
facepalm
