Triumph 5SW quality control


Recommended Posts

My recently restored Triumph 5SW started breathing heavily to the point where its blowing past the mag seal and spraying oil mist over the mag. There is good compression and not a whiff of smoke. Never the less I've pulled the head and barrel off. The ring gaps that I religiously set at 12 thou have increased to 25+ thou in only about 200 miles.   So these new rings (from Cox and Turner) are made of licorice. Where can I buy good rings with confidence?  Ron
