Triumph main bearings

Like many of the Coventry makes, Triumph had their roots in the bicycle industry, beginning motorcycle production in 1902.

Hi guys , Not been around for a while but started at long last to put the Triton back together. Does anyone know why there would be a roller bearing on each end of the crank and not a roller / ball combination on a T'bird

Cheers Tritonrat

Can't answer that one (welcome back BTW :155 ) but my dearly-departed rigid with T110 cases containing unit T120 internals and top end had the same set-up. It worked fine so I never changed it, but according to the various manuals it wasn't correct.
