Looking to borrow a tool...

Does anybody have a liner extractor (T3880315) lying around maybe I could borrow at some point? I'd love to not have to crack the cases to do rings, but this tool is $210 from Bike Bandit and the only one on eBay right now is listed at $275; definitely outside the budget!

Cheers,
-Kit

I made one. all you need is some threaded rod, some flat metal (on the thick side and some sockets to use as spacers.

I've never been inside a triple so forgive my ignorance. But couldn't you drop the oil pan and have access to the big ends of the connecting rods, then just pull it straight up out the top (piston & con rod). Seems a little easier than pulling the liners.

Now if your replacing the liners too, then forget everything I just said. I will dig for my custom tool, if I can find it I will take a pic and post it up. If you promise not to laugh too much.

I'd love to see it, and believe me, I won't laugh! You should've seen what I used to install the headstock bearings for my Suzuki forks...

Both manuals say liners have to be pulled to access the pistons, and cases have to be split unless you have the Triumph tool. I'd love to have an easier way, but I'd hate to go to the trouble of pulling the head and then break something because I wasn't willing to put in another three or four hours of work.

Cheers,
-Kit

That's exactly what I'm looking to do, Bruce. Valve stem seals as well, as long as I'm in there.

Kit are you going to upgrade your "Flugelbinder" while you are in there?

Inquiring minds need to know


Cheers
Dave

Not sure what shoelaces have to do with engine internals, Dave...

It most certainly is not! Now, what's the address of this suspicious forum you mention...
