Triumph 3SW Oil Tank

Recommended Posts

Is this tank genuine, I see the 3HW tanks have a pipe into the frame, surely a small rubber hose combo with copper pipe piped into the frame would work the same ?.

Yes your tank is correct other than it has a pre-war filler cap (with damaged fin) All the WD bikes had hot cross bun caps. The 3HW tank was amended to take a copper pipe with acorn nut on a threaded fitting outside the frame. The breather pipe (Rubber or copper) just poked into that hole on the saddle tube......And why not? will help save the frame from rusting from the inside. Ron
