1946 Triumph Speed Twin 5T engine 500cc Twin with clear engine number.
A just post-WW2 Triumph Speed Twin / 5T engine for rebuild. This is an engine for the beautiful rigid-framed Triumph. Engines for the pre-war Speed Twins are now hideously expensive. This one, from 1946, would still suit the pre-war bikes. It even comes fitted with the original K2F magneto. The magneto is dated January 1946. I have not tested it. Consider this and the carburettor mount as a bonus.
The engine halves are an original pairing from factory. The case half numbers match. The engine number is unmolested and clear. The engine number is shown in the images. The number begins with “46 5T”.
Condition: This engine is being sold for rebuild. it turns by hand (although it is a bit stiff) and it seems to be complete. Expect few marks. The threads look OK to me. I even ran a spark plug in each side. Those threads are fine too.
The pistons are currently +020. However, it’s clear that the engine stood for some time before I bought it. Consequently, the barrels are marked where the rings have come into contact with the sleeves. I’ve shown this in an image. I suppose as it’s on Plus 20 pistons, you have some room to work with.
As with anything that needs to be rebuild, I would always advise coming over to inspect it yourself.
The engine stand is not included in the sale.
Viewing: Please come and check it over before you buy. It is at PE28, near St Ives in Cambridgeshire.
Shipping: I usually ship to most destinations. If you don’t see a price, please ask. Thanks. International shipping available.
Collection: If you don’t want it shipped, I have plenty of space. If you can’t collect for a while, it’s not a problem. However, I will need to be paid very soon after the sale. Thanks.
Payment: Good old fashioned money on collection is preferred. I can accept payment through PayPal or by bank transfer as well.
Import Taxes: Please note that IMPORT DUTIES are not something I can control. If you are buying from outside the UK, there is a chance that you will have to pay import taxes. Import taxes vary from country to country. If there are charges to pay, it is the buyer’s responsibility to research the cost and pay the duties. The price that you see on my advert is for the item and not the item plus whatever taxes might be due.
