Default T100 Oil lines

Hey, Im just about finished with my Triumph T100C and are ready to kick it over, i wanted to double check i have the feed and scavenger pipes on the correct way round for obvious reasons.

I currently have the feed/filter going to the furthest away fitting under the engine (see pic)

Also i read the breather needs to go to atmosphere, can i just leave it without a pipe on at all then?

The open vent line up top will make a hell of a mess

those small round horizontal oil tanks often times make a hell of a mess at sustained freeway speeds.

there needs to be enough room for 2 quarts of oil and the return oil and air mixture to separate inside the tank.

those tanks often end up puking foam all over the bike.

If you have that problem (i presume you don't want to buy a new tank)
run an inline filter on return then you can run less oil in tank (give it some breather space) you can buy a bolt on kit cheap.
could be solution if you have this problem?

Thanks for your replys... So "front = feed" I.e the front of the bike?

I'll look into a filter on return and better rig up a pipe to get this out the way also..

Should I fill the oil tank up with the correct amount of oil only or do I need to put some directly in the engine also to begin with as the engine is currently dry?

If you want to be absolutely sure, remove your oil lines and thoroughly prime them...it's a good idea to do that anyway, ensures that you have a full hose directly to the oil pump....this is something I always do, especially on rebuilt machines; no chance of the pump getting air locked. After priming, push the kickstart down a few times ...you will be able to see the oil in the suction line getting drawn down the hose toward the engine, the return line will burp it out.

Thanks Richbob and Goldy..

What do you mean by "check rocker oiling
you have restriction for rocker feed?" ?

When you say "prime the pipes" do you mean fill them with oil and then reconnect them?

Thanks

Remember Imperial quarts are bigger than US quarts, so be careful of your source on the 3.6 qts.

Yep...to prime them, stick an oil feeder in them and pump them full.

OK i hooked all pipes up filled it with Petrol and starting kicking, 20 kicks later it fired! Not sure why it took such a fight to fire especially as i have a new Joe Hunt fitted? Hopefully it will start quicker next time..

Hope the oil circulated ok!

Did i need to put oil anywhere else?

Here is a pic of the oil system on your Triumph

When the engine is running remove the oil filler cap, and make sure the oil is returning into the oil tank. Also remove the oil feed on the return to the rockers, and make sure the oil is also returning and feeding the rockers

And a pic showing how your oil tank should work
