All sorted now, post can be removed, thanks everyone!

 

I have just picked a new project a rolling chassis Triumph Terrier, I will add a new post in the non bantam section soon, but I thought I might as well list a wanted item ...you never know.

I am after a Triumph Terrier engine, the more complete the better, if anyone has one or knows somebody who is willing to sell one I will give my details via PM, it needs to have a clear engine number as it will need to be registered with the DVLA

also needed chainguard, oil tank and tool/battery box.

Thanks, Larry

Sorry, Larry, I can't help you with an engine. Somewhere deep in my shed among my spare Bantam wheels I do have a rear wheel from a plunger Triumph Terrier, painted deep maroon. It was donated to me for my plunger Bantam but, although it fitted in the frame the rim offset appeared to be different. (?). But it would appear that you have a rolling chassis so no need for a wheel. I will be having a clearout of all my spare wheels soon so it and the others may be of use to someone.

If you can not find a Terrier engine then one of the first Tiger Cub engines, with the side split crankcases may look right. 

There is this on Ebay at the moment,similar price to B175 engines !!!

Enjoy your Terrier, I did in my time with Tiger Cubs in the 1970s.

Thanks Wildun, I am ok for wheels, the one on ebay looks good I enquired with the seller it has no engine number so prob is new old stock. That is a bit of a problem with registering with dvla, I suppose I could swap the internals and line ream new bushes in some stamped cases but it makes it very expensive.

plunger cub engines before number t20 26276 will slot in the frame so I will keep looking.

Cheers wildun, regards Larry

After help from sunny and Glen found out it is a Cub so an early cub engine for plunger frame is needed

I now have a 'same year' 1955 cub part engine so I will make a start with this and build it up as I go along, un-known condition cub engines are very expensive around £500 being asked so I might as well use what I have got and fit new bushes etc, it may cost me around the same price in the end but at least I know what is inside it

I agree with your plan. If you have built it yourself then you know its secrets and its a big dose of 'peace of mind'. It is one of the oldest tricks to polish up a duff engine and pass it off as a rebuild. In this modern world of 'classic'  motorcycles I am beggining to wonder if a dismantled engine might be more valuable than an assembled one ? To me it would be.
