Re: Need Triumph guru's advice for carb choice

They do. I'm running one on a '73 T140V, and I find no difference between it and the "new" Amal Concentric on one of my other Triumphs. Both good carbs.

Re: Sportster Neck tube length differences

The Sportster neck dimensions, with regard to stem diameter and length, became the same as Big Twin on the 1982 models. I don't have specific info for the earlier ones.

Re: vintage pics o' the day

Been a while since anything was posted here so I thought I'd put up this picture of my Mom and Dad on his VL. It was taken around 1934.

Re: More triumph wiring questions

Correct on the switch. Just find the terminals that have continuity for the ignition and lights. The kit you referenced comes with the Podtronics rect./reg unit. I noticed that the Podtronics shown...

Re: More triumph wiring questions

I assume you're going 12 volts? You've got some options, but I'd install a Tympanium combo rectifier regulator to replace the stock rectifier. The stock circuit sends unrectified AC to the lighting...

Re: Looking for a new daily - Evo sportster advice?

Not just you. I'm a fan of the old ones too. I have a '60 XLH waiting patiently for a restoration.

Re: Looking for a new daily - Evo sportster advice?

In my opinion, the '91-'03 frame mount 5 speed Evo Sportsters are the best of the XL's. Reliable alternator, still has a trapdoor, and the 5 speed by most accounts is a better transmission than the 4...

Re: 5spd Evo Sportster engine in '85 frame

The 4 speed Evo motor fits into the '82 and up frames with no mods. However, if you use a 5 speed motor on pre-5 speed frames, the side stand has to be moved. The bulge in the crankcase for the...

Re: Welding to early Triumph cast frame lugs

They're certainly not cast iron, but rather cast steel or malleable low carbon content iron as was mentioned. I usually braze where Triumph lugs are involved. Nickel rod is not a bad idea if you want...

Re: You guys need to know about this...

Anyone know what the origin of the 900cc XL Sportster cylinders may be? Not Harley part numbers.

Re: pre unit wheel dilemma

If the rear wheel is properly set up for sprocket alignment, why don't you just put a 43 tooth sprocket on the Harley wheel? You could also lace an 18" rim to it if you don't want to use the 16".

Re: xs650 wheels on a ironhead

Can't answer your question on spacing, but you're going to have to run a skinny rear tire on the 19" Yamaha wheel. If that's the look you're going for, cool!

Could you elaborate on the brake plate anchor and brake linkage? They don't appear to be installed in the photo.

Re: 1979 Shovelhead

What's the bore diameter on that "modern" master cylinder? If it's "modern" it may be for a disk and probably smaller than the standard 3/4" master cylinder used for the drum brake. Disk brake master...

Re: Frozen Pre-unit sliders

I see the drain screws are still in place. Did you take them out, fill with penetrating oil and replace?

Re: Triumph missfire

Bingo! Give that man a prize! The fouling provides a ground path that bleeds down the coil secondary voltage as the coil saturates. Holding the cap just above the plug lets the voltage build until it...

Re: Springer forks input

There are certainly other type of forks that provide better function and handling, but if it has to be a springer, I'd go with the "traditional" style that doesn't use the top tree as spring...
