Triumph T140V Motorcycle
A straight forward job where our customer needed some pistons for a Triumph T140V engine at 0.040” oversize, but was unable to obtain any.
He supplied a sample piston so we could reference the compression height, pin diameter, valve relief size and angle and the profile of the dome / intruder of the piston. These were then made at the bore size he required.
As this job only required 2 pistons there is an extra cost applied to the pistons to compensate for the design and machining set up time.
Other Case Studies
Our customer had a normally aspirated Clio 1.6GT and wanted to fit a turbo kit to the car. Normally aspirated engines generally run to high a compression for a reliable turbo conversion, and would limit the amount of boost you can use. Lowering the compression ratio to 9.0:1 would improve reliabiliRead more
Our Customer wanted to change the stroke on his BMW M42 engine by fitting a longer stroke crankshaft from a later BMW engine. The finished pistons needed to suit a bore size of 86.50mm and give a compression ratio of 10.5:1. The stroke of the engine was changing from 81mm to 88mm.Read more
