Hi all, restoring stock tiger and am redoing the oil lines. I got a new T connection and have no idea of where it is supposed to reside. Anyone have a pic of how that is hooked up, where the lines are supposed to run and location from the vent at the top of the neck and the vent from the primary? Thanks

The vent from the top of the main frame tube connects to a metal T at the primary case.This T is the connector between the primary case and the vent tube that runs the length of the rear fender on the left of the bike.

MoBe,
my bike is missing the vent tube that runs the length of the fender. If you do have a pic I would love to see how it's run. Right now I just have a 2 inch breather "stub" right behind the oil holding part of the frame.

On my T120V the small tube from the T-piece loops up to the breather tube below the the front of the frame.
*Note, I think the `T` should be a little further back.
This is the primary view:

Thanks for the pic! here's the thing with mine: The T stops just behind the side cover, and there is no pipe off the back side of the T. It stops right in front of the fender. I'm getting a lot of oil back there (just learned I probably have a wet sump, so I got that going for me, which is nice...) and I was wondering if this stubby breather tube might be contributing. Sorry for all the questions but I have nothing to reference against!
Here's a pic:

I have the tee hidden behind the left ignition cover. The main tube off the motor leads to the larger port on the tee. The bull(top) of the tee has a hose that runs under the tank (tied under the frame) all the way to the oil vent behind and under the front neck of the frame. The rear of the tee ties in to the d-shaped hose that runs along the left side of the rear fender. This requires special d-shaped clips to mount the hose. Classicbike.biz has a parts book that gives you the part #s if you need them. I attached a pic of the D-shaped hose on my fender.

If you have the original rear fender you will notice a series small holes along the left perimeter starting at the mid battery approximately all the the way to within a couple of inches of the rear bottom edge.This is where the breather hose is attached.You can get the original D shaped hose from a Triumph specialist parts supplier or just use an appropriate sized automotive grade rubber hose.If you go for the D shaped hose you will also want the special clamps to go with them as they are also available.

Do you have a parts book for your bike yet?If not go to www.classicbike.biz

Perfect! Thanks ya'll. This forum never ceases to amaze me. I read a lot about filters and length of tube and height of the tube end in reference to the breather on the case, but it looks like I just need to go to about 5 inches above the back end of the fender.
p.s. got the parts book, somehow missed it. too tired from putting on the new rocker gaskets and polishing all the washers, nuts and bolts.

My `D` shaped hose goes around the inside of the rear mudguard.
The reason for this hose is relieve primary pressure and vent oily gases.
Any droplets of oil will not make it up the hose rise (in theory) and drain back to the primary, the hot gas is expelled from the rear. :)
