I cannot speak to how it was done at the Triumph factory, only from my experience at the Honda engine plant in Ohio where the Accord, Civic and Acura 4 and 6 cylinder and IIRC the Goldwing six cylinder had cast iron sleeves inserted into the aluminum die cast machine for a true cast insert. Click off wrenches are very cool to me, in fact the greatest thing since sliced bread!donald branscom said:The torque wrench that clicks when the torque that you have set, is reached, was introduced when I was a jet engine mechanic. That was about 1970 or so.
Not a big deal.
Sleeves are not cast into jugs. Sleeves are part of the jugs OR they are pressed to fit. Usually a pressed to fit is a cast iron cylinder in a aluminum cylinder.
Those Triumphs came before aluminum jugs (cylinders).
