Does anyone have a diagram for the breather pipe setup, it looks like its tee'd off in a picture but I can't find any real info in any of the manuals on it, any diagrams/photos/info would be appreciated
Thanks

As you can see one hose goes to the oil tank the other to the outlet pipe which goes over the rear guard. The third pipe goes via a hose to the crankcase breather

Hope that helps

Cheers

John - thanks for that. I was looking for the same info.
At the risk of being a pain in the ar** could you take a picture of how the pipe terminates on the rear guard? I.e. are there any more clips used and does it go under the guard?

Cheers, Kevin

Sorry This is the only other pic I have

That does help. I see now it sort of looks to head off under the rear fender. Looking in the parts list I dont see anything that attachs it under there.

Does anyone know what happens to the breather pipe when it goes under the rear fender?

Thanks!

Hi Kev,
Looking though the pics in my books it looks like the tube is attached to the highest point of the rear fender and then (depending upon the bike) some would appear to then run over lifting rail and then disappear from view under the number plate mounting plate (UK Spec ?) I found the photo in "Triumph Bonneville" by Steve Wilson.
The other version (US?) runs below the lifting rail and then disappears from view under the rear fender which is then attached by a clip which uses the same bolt/nut as the lifting handle (R/H Side) This is according to the book "Triumph Motorcycle Restoration" by Timothy Remus & Garry Chitwood. It is only noted as a caption under a photo which states the clip has not yet been installed.
The final version (1970?) is a 'D' section tube secured to the L/H side of the rear fender the same as the OIF models.

BTW if you are restoring your 68 the book "Triumph Motorcycle Restoration" by Timothy Remus & Garry Chitwood. would be a great help to you, there is a reasonable amount of technical info and lots of good close up colour photos of a 68 (it's a bit like motorcycle porn:))

Webby - Im embarrassed to say I have the Remus book! :eek:
I looked thru it but did not catch the quote you mentioned-you are obviously more meticulus than I. too bad they didnt have the photo.
I think I know what they are on about -- I have the clip and now know where to put it.
And I agree - it is a great book and the one I go to most often. I just got lucky they used a 68 Bonnie (which I have) so its like they made the book just for me!
Thanks again.
Cheers,
Kevin

Hi Kev, I'm not meticulus, I just don't get out very often :)
I agree it's a good book even for me with an OIF, as the engines the same. The photo not showing the clip (but at least showing the underside of the fender) is on page 31 top L/H corner.

BTW Looking again at the photo, I thought they had a nut missing on the R/H lifting rail mount, now I'm not so sure. So it's possible the clip goes somewhere else (?)

Webby - yep, i noticed the missing nut. I think logistically the clip must clamp the hose down on the clutch (left) side of the fender. I think the missing right nut is red herring :)

Im going to go ahead and clamp it down under the left hand fender nut. It'll be one of the things I look for next time I get to go to a vintage bike show. Unless some kind sole can post a picture for me :D

Thanks again.

That's a '69 T100C ... I'm currently helping finish up a budget restoration on one of those ...
Hell, is there such a thing as a budget restoration ?? I guess I just lack the self control
This bike came out of the states, still on std bore and mechanically not to bad, was last registered in 1974

Cheers
