attached my lamp shell to the original post, I think I will need a magician when it gets to re-wriring mine, the old one was entirely spliced, and looking at the pictures the PO spliced everything with the same color wire, so I will probably have some pondering medicine b4 attempting the re-wire.

more progress, fixed my propane torch nozzle, got the drive side case heated enough and after a day and a half in the freezer for the bearing it popped right in. Also got my sludge trap nut, hex style, but it is really tight going in and I don't want to strip it so I did not force it. Also need a new allen wrnech that fits it, mine don't. Will try a little further cleaning on the crank sludge nut threads next, get the scavenge filter cleaned up and ready to go back on, then maybe I can get the crank back together. sounds like a rainy sunday, may be a good day to try.

Also the parts manual shows a tach valve on the exhaust cam, but I am pretty sure my bike did not have this, or if it did, I have lost it. The bike did not have a tach on it, just the speedo, so can I have the exhaust cam without the Tach valve if there is no tachometer?

one thing always leads to another, but I am getting itchy to start putting this back together.
well my paper manual doesn't specify spring first or breather valve first into the cam bush. Any opinions? I am pretty sure it came out as cam, spring, then breather valve.

Hi yagman

Thanks for the lamp pic.

I finally got my bike on the ramp today, stripped the old exhaust and roughly positioned the new high level ones.

I have fitted my bracket same as yours, from passenger peg mounting up to p clip on frame.

I also have a chrome bracket which I take it bolts through where the two tabs on the exhaust join down to somewhere near the brake lever pivot. It's not the same shape as yours though

The main problem is with my mufflers though. The top oner lines up fine but the bottom one has the receiver for the mounting bolt welded on about 3 inches further along, almost as if the mounting stay should be at a 45 degree angle.

Can you confirm whether your mufflers both have the hole for the bolt in the same position? I cant think of any other way it will fit?

Thanks! I'm starting a rebuild thread on my bike imminently to keep all my numpty newbie questions in one place

Mine are definitely different. posted pics of them on the bike originally in my very first post.
On my pipes the mufflers are offset the top muffler is in front of the lower one.
my front mount has the hole lower than yours and my rear mount has a 45 degree angle at the bottom to push it back a little, it does not go straight up.

THe pipes are also shown, the bolt holes on the pipes them selves look pretty close. hope this helps

Thanks again for your help with this. This latest post and some pondering has prompted the eureka moment that it is actually my header pipes that are wrong, not the mufflers. My pipes are both the same length which wrongly prompted me to think the silencers should sit one on top of each other whereas - as your first pic confirms - they should be offset. This means that the lower pipe needs to be a few inches longer than the upper. In this configuration the holes in the mufflers will line up correctly with the vertical rear stay. I'll worry about the front stay later. Shouldn't be too hard to fabricate something if mine doesn't fit.

It's irritating though because I bought the pipes and mufflers from a dealer at a bike show, confirming the OEM numbers and he assured me they were the correct ones. I know need to track him down and see if he will honour a swop - that's even if he has them. Grrr.

ha ha! glad to help, my pipes clamp right at the muffler. I have bought a few parts that were suppossed to be right, but they are different, has made me somewhat gun shy. I am sure that in 68 when triumph was going under, that a lot of parts were pulled from stock that may have not been waht was listed, but were functionally ok. it is always an adventure when getting replacements.

Made some progress finally this weekend. Got the crank cleaned off and replaced the sludge trap and plug. Cleaned up and refit the engine sump plug and filter, got new rod bearings inserts in, the connecting rods on and the Crank in the DS Case. need to get the other case half on next and get it in the engine mount. Took a fair bit of time cleaning up and identifying the case bolts, hope to get the other half of the case on this week.

Finally got around to sorting all my photos and posting, for hi-res shots of taking the bike down go to:

enjoy seems to me the bike was pretty much a US model original, matched the parts book pretty closely. I will be starting a rebuild album soon.
