Re: Triumph 650 Help

I originally missed the part about the petcocks not flowing. We need lively discussions like this again on this board. When I'm trying to get something running I've usually got an IV set up for the...

Re: Triumph 650 Help

I'd say you need to get the idle jet cleaned. Carb spray and guitar string don't always do it, so you need to do the twist drill deal. I'm thinking it's a #78 drill size, but not sure till I double...

Wrong, dummy. Kicker and shifter coming out the same hole.

Re: t120 harness than sludge trap or go through engine first?

I've pulled a few BSA sludge tubes that didn't have much in them. But never Triumph, they always got a lot of crud. The one you have running now, you could be chewing up the drive side rod bearings...

Re: Banned users

Maybe this place would get a little action again if all banned members, even the assholes, were invited back.

Re: Frozen Pre-unit sliders

My Hy-Lift jack can work as a big spreader. Maybe one of them and some chain?

Re: Triumph T100 Head

Before photobucket fucked us all I could have referred you to some pics about all this. As it is, I went to google images but couldn't really find much.

If nobody comes along here with the facts,...

Re: Triumph T100 Head

Yeah, like Chris says you gotta match it up. You got your squish pistons and the regular squared off looking ones. Squish is champhered around at the top, and the head is as well to accept the...

Re: Lapping piston rings using Bon Ami - A Tribute to Mr. Pete

Okay, wait a minute. I had complete respect for Mr. Pete. But he wasn't doing this on a brand new assembly, was he? Surely not, there's just no reason. Maybe on an engine where the rings never did...

Re: Lapping piston rings using Bon Ami - A Tribute to Mr. Pete

What geezer does is right where I'm at. I'm interested in all this sort of thing.......but, why? I've never needed anything like this. Cast iron rings, assembled dry, idle just long enough to make...

Re: Pre unit battery

Use a cheap little 12v battery with LED lights, it'll last a long time between charge.

Re: triumph 650 selector rod help

This was discussed not too long ago on Britbike, I asked because I had been supplied with a sealed bearing. The bearing came from one of the big Brit parts places, so I asked. And was surprised that...

Re: Dual Amal Carbs

And "389/689" doesn't tell you the bore size of the carbs. You need the numbers off the flanges before you buy anything. Also a monobloc has to have the correct jet block in it for the size. 389...

Re: triumph 650 crank end float??

I can't see it all in my head without parts on my bench, but you might also want the alternator rotor tight for checking.

Re: Where do you British bike guys get your crankshafts ground?

I'm not ready to recommend anyone, and if I did it would involve shipping.

But I want to say don't give it to anyone who doesn't understand and take very seriously that whole timing side bush deal.

Re: Triumph parts ID help needed

Those two carbs are the same bore, so you should be good if they have the same slide number. 389 and 689 slides are not interchangeable.

Re: Triumph parts ID help needed

Yeah, post the numbers on the carb flanges so you can be sure the bore size is the same.

Wait, I think I found the list:
