Just found out it is a November 1967 model 41 water cooled 250 TSS. One for the bully brains trust. I have a set of mark 3 pursang cases, will mark 10 internals fit inside these cases??

No.
    Mk10 have a different size output shaft(bigger)and just about everything else is different.

Just picked up a bottom end, radiator, temp gauge, coil, pipe and bits all new unused. Only need a watercooled 250 head and barrel and it's good to go. Getting a bit excited about this project now.

Well done,that is a very rare motor,especially if it has the gearbox.There have been TSS parts on eBay lately.There is a guy in the USA that has a big collection of TSS's,Donald McCullough is his name,try some forums for his email.I had his email but it is not current.

Moto,
      Thanks, have been talking with Don, nice bloke, lots of info. Bottom end is complete and never used (NOS), same as the radiator. Was very lucky to get onto it, 20 minutes away from home. Watercooled head and barrel will be the last bits to find, then I can build it up. Hopefully another bully saved. ????

PM sent
Regards
David

Hoping for a bit of luck, just picked up this TSS roller, it's all Bultaco. Would like to find a 360 or 250 Pursang, Bandito etc motor to drop in it.
 This is what I got



And this is how I'd like it to end up looking



If anyone has something that might work and they would be interested in selling please message me, thanks for looking, Terry.
Ps, already thrown the front mudguard before anyone comments
Dave's not here man

You could try Kevin Breedon in the UK.  He has been racing TSS's for years and I bet he could help with the parts you need.

Thanks David, reply sent.

Thanks Murph, I will try Kevin and see if he can help, these watercooled parts seem to be a very rare item, only need a head and barrel to finish this bike.
