As seen in pic, There was a spring over the pushrod not on any parts list for 74 t150 and I checked the t160 book ( pdf from British only))
Also among the front end parts I rezinc-ed there was the little hat spacer left that I can't remember where it was from. It fits over the brake pushrod and initially I thought it was related to the spring, again no sign of it in the parts book. Any out there remember seeing anything like that?

Neither part belongs there as that's where the front brake light switch would normally be.

Thanks. The PO did things his way. For the most part it seemed to work if slightly "eccentric" (aka bodger). Just trying to make stable rider and hate putting stuff back together knowing something's amiss. Fitting a banjo bolt switch on the advice of Dmadigan

Good advice, I have one on my T120 with the disc brake. Unfortunately the one I got from Pegasus has too long a thread. I had to use two copper washers. For some reason the ones with metric threads are shorter. crazy

The width of banjos changed, the old ones were 0.395" and the new ones are 0.350". Presumably the length of the banjo bolts changed also. The latest ones that I bought are 0.795" under head.

Yes, that also figures into it. The banjo on the Russell brake line which is on my bike is thinner than the Triumph banjo.
I think the term "universal" should be banned from product advertising, replaced by a requirement for complete disclosure of all dimensions.
Standards are wonderful, that's why we have so many different ones.
Just lucky the whole brake system is not BSP. laughing
