  1. I purchased the top yoke, so maybe frame and fork might be coming together after 4 years? Still a lot of smaller parts missing, the top attachment for mounting the spring to the top yoke, for example. Is somebody producing the front axle for the 3sw/3hw? I got a "Made in Britain" rear axle and modern Timken Bearings from Ace Classics, but nobody seems to produce a trustworthy front axle.
  2. Nice inner primary cover, which he has for sale. I just received mine back from my welder.
  3. I have seen this part, thanks. Will have a look at his other auctions. I have this top yoke, it bothers me that it is exactly 15cm long, which might, maybe, indicate a replica build in a country using the metric system? The metric length of my lower yoke, the one with the damage in the middle of the main shaft, is only 14,8mm. And at least one of the grease fitting holes seems to be at a different position, compared with your 3sw pictures. No bushing inside this part.
  4. I have this manual, these were made to confuse the enemy, so that they could not repair a captured 3sw, right? The DS6 knob has a tread, this tread is for attaching the mysterious part FS269, as far as I understand. Not for fixing the knob somehow to the head crown nut H94 or even to the lower yoke? Am I correct that the DS6/FS269 combination is only forced down by the H200/H190 steering damper rod? Otherwise it is sitting loose in the head crown nut H94? Edit: I can´t find "FS269" in the manual, only "TS269", just under the DS6 knob. Ok, I understand, they tried to confuse the Germans again. Ha, didn´t work this time! 😛
  5. Judging by your last photo at least my top nut, the one under the steering damper knob, is correct. How do I identify the correct steering damper knob? This one for example would cost me more then 120 Euros, that would be a little too much for me, if it turns out to be the wrong one.
  6. It is exactly 8"...now, but how long was it originally? Stems cups - are these the "Set of Four Steering Head Bearings + Set Balls Bearings" which Cornucopia (in my neighbourhood) sells for 135 Euros? Guess I need a top yoke first..and then again I need to know how it looks like first.
  7. Very nice photos, very helpful. The only thing which I can´t find in any of the 3sw related posts in this forum seems to be a clear view of the parts which connect the girder fork to the frame. The bottom and top yoke and the smaller parts attached to them. Does the attached photo show a Triumph Tiger 70 / 3sw bottom yoke? How long would be measurement "b" on such a 3sw bottom yoke, as this one might have been chopped? Thanks in advance
  8. Found a complete wheel with a front axle, but now I am looking for a Speedo Drive. These two speedo drives are currently on the market, a bit too expensive to buy them and then learn that they don´t fit. Does somebody have more informaton like a part number, which could help me to find the correct one? Some close-up photos of the speedo drive and gear arrangement inside the brake drum would be nice.
  9. Thanks, the front bearings would have made it easier to have an axle produced locally. My front axle from my post-war front fork is 1mm thicker than the original 7/16, so I would also need all nut and anchor plate support nuts for the 3sw fork.
  10. Does somebody have more information about the front wheel axle, W323 in this drawing? Dimensions or even a source in Europe, for the shaft and all marked parts? Is it correct that the front shaft is much thinner in diameter, then the rear axle rod W61?
  11. Does somebody have the dimensions for this part "top link H164"? I have similiar looking parts on a damaged SpeedTwin girder fork, but would need a confirmation about the measurements for the 3sw. Thanks Oliver
  12. Thanks, I have an original 3sw main fork, ´new old stock´ from Greece earlier this year ... and paid too much for it. The missing top part under the steering damper knob is still missing and I don´t trust the steering stem that I have purchased. Have to find an original or fill in an organ donor card, before using it.
  13. Spindle 3 can be turned a few threads into both directions, until it is blocked by part 2 on the other side. Are the threads running in opposite direction? The other spindle is completely stuck, I tried heat, oil and yelling at it in German. Unless I find a (cheap) WD/CO without a fork this will be stored here for years or it will become someone else´s problem. Oliver
  14. This front fork came with my Triumph earlier this year and was identified here as Royal Enfield WD CO. It is complete with fender, but was heavily rusted, so I needed to put some work in it, in order to preserve it. However I can not disassemble it further, as the bolts (3,4) are stuck. Cutting part 2 and 1 in half seems to be the only way of being able to remove it. I also don´t know how to remove the main shaft (5?). Any ideas? Still some rust visible which needs to be sandblasted in areas covered by the parts I want to remove. The metal corrodes really quick again once the rust is removed. I needed to spray the overhauled areas, as I work only from time to time on it. Original Thread: http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?43244-What-type-of-girder-fork-is-this
