Mk Fork bottom bearings
« on: 19 Mar 2017 at 23:07 »
The parts list shows taper bearing and also cup and cone for the lower bearing on the mark steering across all Mk Models. Has anyone any idea what is meant to be fitted? I cant fit both in together!

Early T35's were fitted with a cup and cone bearing and 5/16" balls. Later Mk's were fitted with the taper roller bearing. The 2 types of bearing are interchangeable as complete assemblies.

Cheers Eddie
I'm sure there will be lots more questions in the next couple of months have not put a dougie back together in a long while! The T35 is in France at the mo so difficult to look at it for reference. Hope your keeping well
