Hey there again friends!

Im sorry to be posting so often, but I am beating my head against the wall with this one.

Ok so as most rocker boxes I have some stripping issues. Most have all now been fixed with Helicoils and are working great, but the problem that I am having is with the front fixed bolts that are located below the rocker inspection cover ( bike is a 73 T140 ) that attaches the rocker box to the cylinder head. The right side bolt is totally stripped and I am wondering what can be done to fix this? Do I re-cut/tool? the threads on the fixed bolt? Or is there a way to replace these fixed bolts that i have not seen yet...

Thanks so much for the help!!

It sounds like you're talking about one of the 3 little 1/4" studs on the bottom of the rocker box.The thread on the stud is strpped,but it's still tightly screwed into the rocker box.

If that's the case,just unscrew it from the rocker box and fit another stud.You might have to grip the stud in a vice and swing the rocker box to loosen it.Double-nut the new stud to screw it in.

Yea that is them, are the new studs easy to find or is it a special order type deal? Anyone know the part #? Is it # 14-1401 on this site here : http://northerneagle.ca/triumph hardware.htm

I was really hoping that that was the case.

Thanks Mr. Pete for the info!

I'm almost certain they are 1/4" unc, but take one to a specialist nut and bolt guy and they will have what you want. If you cannot obtain an exact length, buy longer and trim to size. RR
