This chrome plated dust excluder sleeve nut, or fork seal holder, is correct for the 1964-1968 Triumph twins, however, there is no recess cut in the threaded portion to accommodate the sealing o-ring, as fitted to the 1967-1968 models. The part number was never changed from the 1964-1966 condition. The seal holder is supplied with the oil seal installed. This listing is for (1) seal holder.

Sourced from LF Harris, in the UK, the seal holder sleeve nut is threaded to 26 TPI, with an ID of 1-5/8″. While the chrome plating features a bright lustre, there may be some fine imperfections in the finish that do not affect functionality. Manufactured to the 1964-1966 condition.

The seal holder has a slight lip at the top to capture the lower end of the fork gaiter, which requires a spring clip to retain the gaiter. The oil seal is pre-fitted, making the seal holder sleeve nut ready for installation.

The seal holder sleeve nut slides up the fork stanchion tube to meet the fork spring, which is covered by the fork gaiter. The fork lower member is then offered to the sleeve nut and threaded together. A special tool with adjustable pins is used to tighten the assembly. Refer to the factory workshop manual for detailed instructions.

Please note: Due to varying bans on the use of hexavalent chrome in the chroming process, this item will have varying appearance different than OEM standards. Chromers are frequently using trivalent in their processes. “It’s just not the same color. Hexavalent has that clear blue sheen, but trivalent is more grayish and smoky. Trivalent will not replace the look of hexavalent.”
