I Win

A lil heat and a ton of PB Blaster



found a small crack in the timing gear cover after soda blasting! does not show on the outside though.

The crack is near the bottom and looks like an X

I don't see that as a problem.
I'm no engineer but all the timing cover does is hold the oil seal for the points/cam
and covers the timing gears and keeps a bit of oil in.

I wonder if that "crack" was a blister in the casting that has given way?
ie a small bubble with a fragile skin of alloy that's now weakened?
anybody worked in a foundry?

So on the picture above of the shift lever shaft.. It seems that the sleeve came out of the aluminum with the shaft.. will this cause a leak later? Is there a product to put on the sleeve to seal it to the aluminum cover?

Cheers
Rob

More Picts

Well every piece that can be taken apart has been!! Now the real work and the real $ begins

Time to figure out if I'm powder coating or re chroming the rims, source spokes and blast + powder coat the hubs


Ready to blast



The forks took a while and a lot of pounding to get one of the tubes to come out of the bottom TT.



Ohh and my 40 Dollar parts washer!! gotta love craigslist!!

haven't posted in a lil while... Too busy building

had to fab a blast cabinet.. partner dubbed it the HABC(hokie ass blast cabinet lol) yes it has doors



ordered a hard tail form Lowbrow Customs, What a great experience talking on the phone with them. The guy could have talked my ear off for hours about old Triumph's, you could feel the love d



parts blasted gonna start powder coating Saturday. Found twenty dollar double oven on craigslist.



Scored a transmission for under 200 bux off ebay, the original tranny had some rust issues.

Cheers
Rob

getting ready for the spokes from Buchannons, probably 6 hours on the bench grinder with a wire wheel and some buffing!



The original speedometer looks great polished, better than stock IMHO






also trying to convince myself that the powder coat chrome looks worthy of using on the fork seal cups



and a small setback! learning experience for sure
