    Can't see how they are better, no. Not tried them and not heard of them before.

    Thanks, yeah they never had the 250 mono officially in the States, and we never got the 350 officially in Europe. By all accounts the 250 was a better motor, and sold a lot more numbers worldwide.

    Was in the UK back in April / May on holiday with the family. As well as buying a genuine Yamaha w/shop manual and a crank pullerer-inner w/shop tool, some smooth new Venhill clutch cables, i picked up some universal front mudguards, cut the flap off the rear, drilled some holes and reversed them. Look smarter, shorter and more modern than stock. Also picked up two of Paul Cowley's Shedworks sexy-as-hell tank shelters i had ordered, and two plastic tanks i won on Ebay. Lucky we had 3 suitcases..........

    The countersunk holes are the seats for the balls. Once assembled with fresh oil, put your thumb over the pump holes and gently pull one plunger at a time (without the alloy slider block in!) - you should feel good suction & resistance. Happy playing.

    NO O RINGS on the plungers! Buy new springs and balls as a matter of the pump.rebuild. No scoring must be seen or felt on either the pump bores or plungers. Balls are seated on their seats by a sharp tap with a hammer and brass drift prior to assy. Lots of CLEAN oil everywhere prior to bolting onto the motor with a NEW gasket. As i said before, if you want to work inside these engines, they are very simple, but you want a parts book and w/shop manual. If you don't want to spend money, i'm sure a lot of it is online. I personally like hard paper copies of everything i work on, or take apart and rebuild. (just paid 50 quid recently for a ty mono manual....). LFH means it's made in England rather than China or Taiwan, and i'm not joking as you can get plenty of stuff for Brit bikes from these countries and its made down to a price not to a quality std, as specified by the brand name importers.

    Plunger pumps are generally very reliable, one thing they don't like is dirt. Be scrupulously clean on assembly. Cleanliness is next to Godliness.

    It's wet sumping. Every plunger oil pump ever made for any Triumph has non return valves inside on both the feed and return side. They are called balls & springs. Somebody is feeding you misinformation. I've been a Triumph mechanic for over 35 years. Buy yourself a genuine parts book & workshop manual. They are not expensive.

    JB Weld. Repair keyway. Get flywheel to fit nicely WITHOUT the key. Use new key and fit with normal bearing fit loctite. Let it all go off. refit flywheel. Torque nut to correct spec.

    Paul @ CTC sells a couple of different shocks - expensive and super expensive. But you gets what you pays for.....
