Evening all,

I am setting up a pre-unit engine for a Triton.

It consists of a 1969 Triumph T120 head, Morgo big barrel 750cc conversion and a 1959 T110 bottom end.

My current problem is sourcing suitable push rod tubes and seals. Most tubes are too long and the seals seem to be a mix & match with no standard setup.

1. Has anyone set up this engine part combination before? If so, which tubes did you use?
2. What are the shortest pushrod tubes available (part no.s please) so that I can cut my own seals to fit?

Advice appreciated.

Jake

Why are those not available from every stockist on the planet?

Where does one go to what is on offer and to purchase your stuff? mad-components.com doesn't work.

Thanks!

Most people seem to like the assortment of cups, gaskets and seals of the stock setup.

The site was hacked and never put it back together. Suppose I should put one on Faceplant.
