front fork washer ?

The plain washers are 97-1656, the others (both sides) are what were on my 69 t100c. I like the tight seal and cork layer. Anybody what they are and where to get?

I don't see the cork piece in your photo. But from the description and what I see there, you are talking about the spring abutments and the cork seal above them. They are in the parts manual.

You should not have to replace the abutments. Just the cork seals, which I'm not sure do very much other than provide a cushion between the bottom of the yoke and the abutment (spring seat would be what us 'Muricans would call it).

I made my own cork seals by gluing two layers of rubberized cork gasket material together with contact cement to get the correct thickness and then made the proper size hole punches from a piece of exhaust pipe (OD) and tubing (ID) and punched them out on my press.

regards,
Rob

Hi Rob, sorry I wasn't clear. These "washers" (corks seems glued on - tough top see) where on the bottom of the spring where the plain washers (97-1656) should have been. I know I have seen these before but cant recall where.

I'm not sure I 100% understand what you are saying. But I'll give it a go.

If you are telling us that the cork was stuck to the bottom of the spring and was between the plain washer and the spring, they don't belong there unless the T100C forks are different for some reason.

The order of the parts should be the plain washer on the bottom, followed by the spring, then the spring abutment on top of the spring and the cork washer on top of the abutment.

It's very clearly shown in the parts manual. You have a manual, right? If not, they are available for viewing on line. There is a sticky in the Tips & Tricks section with links to them (two different sites).

May I recommend that you proof read your posts before you post them. I make typos too and a typo can completely alter the meaning of a sentence or make it hard to interpret.

regards,
Rob

Hi, These black washer were on the bottom of my springs. The parts manual says plain washers. The new plain washers in the photo was what should have been there, but instead of these plain washers, I found these black washers. These seem to have a cork layer (different from the cork washers on top), they also fit with what seems to be a rubber seal on the ID. These black washer seem to be an improvement over the plain washers which is why I am trying to identify them. I am sure I have seem them before but cant find the thread. Hope this is clearer.

My bike didn't have the plain metal washers and after changing my fork oil and a quick ride, I had trans fluid all over me and the bike. I asked my classic dealer what I needed and they said metal washers like you have in your pic. I would suspect that the cork seals you're speaking of are either aftermarket or something that may not be OEM to Triumph.

I've never seen nor heard of them before.

Given where they were positioned and the added info that they have a rubber wiper type seal on the ID, they may be some kind of secondary wiper that keeps the dirt above the fork seal for longer life.

I'm still not sure what you mean when you say they have a "cork layer". Are you saying these are like a sandwich with a plain washer on each end and a cork washer in between them? Does the cork extend beyond the ID, OD or both? If so, then it sounds like a type of seal. Might be to help keep water out as well.

The picture you posted reminds me of the small sealing washers with the rubber ID (I forget the name) that are used on petcocks.

Maybe someone who has been around these when they were new will recognize these washers.

regards,
Rob

Probably like something out of a '70's Honda, but not OEM on a '60"s Triumph based on what I know (very little). It's amazing how many things fit between manufacturers.

Stat-o-Seal would be the name.
