Head all done ,
I was impressed by boiling carb with vinegar solution it was completely black (I gave it a scrub with paraffin first )
I’m trying to reuse everything that’s original on this bike.

The pushrod tubes are now too long with the bottom cups
But now looking at the tubes closer and setting it all up with Orings looks like it will work without the cups
(I set up and compressed with a g cramp)

Hot dang! That's an excellent rubber installer (in German: Gummikompressor). In my sharply limited experience, Triumph cushes are the worst job to replace.

Excellent, definitely, but with all due respect your basement tech also reminds me of this guy's work:


If you're unfamiliar with Rube Goldberg, and have x hours of free time, google him.

Thanks for the Show & Tell.

First I cleaned with paraffin .
Then put in a small saucepan 1 carb dismantled poured in half a litre of vinegar added water until it covered all the parts then boiled untill I thought they looked clean 2 hours maybe ,it stinks and periodically I wiped the scum off the top with a paper towel . I assembled and then brushed with a soft wire brush.
2 carbs on the left I did ,other 2 came to me pretty clean

I very much like the home made puller & the use of a hose clip to stop it from pulling off the gear your pulling, I have tried a home made puller like that myself but gave up as it kept jumping off,... I never got the thought of holding it on with a hose clip but now I see it being done it's bloody obvious & will try it next time I need something pulled like that,..... great bit of improvisation fella,... in my 'tips' book now,.... thanks

Got my extractor top tip grease it all before you use as turns in to a galled up mess .
Cylinder on(it’s new)I was looking at it and thought I’d drive out tappet guide blocks to see if was oring there on exhaust
Got 2 inlets(no drilled oilway)and there preunit
Another 50 quid later got 2 correct ones.(I could have left and drilled maybe?)
Exhaust has direct oil feed but not inlet I presume it’s because it’s hotter ?
