Triumph chain tensioner.


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm sorting out a 1967 500 Triumph twin engine in a B25 type frame. There isn't a lot of room for messing about with the primary chain tensioner at the back of the chaincase. I've seen passing references to fitting a C15/B40 slipper type tensioner in the primary case but can't find any real info on this.  Is this a possibility or an old wifes tale??.

I did this a many years ago, and they don't fit straight on but i don't remember making a huge change. The slotted bracket which allows the tensioner to move up and down had to be moved but other than that it was straight forward. Bear in mind that my engine runs a smaller crank sprocket'
