I wonder if the spirit of Joe Lucas is still haunting the Triumph name.I think it managed to find its way into my coil and stuffed it
Who said Ned Kelly was dead? He's alive and well,working in the Triumph Parts Pricing Department with Joe Lucas as his adviser. :2guns:

In the words of some unknown sage: "One bad part does not a Lucas make". As someone who lived through the days when Lucas darkened the road, I can say that the electrics on today's Triumphs are vastly better. For instance, I have never had my T100's headlight unplug itself just as I got on the freeway at night. The light on my '66 Norton did that regularly. Many times I would frantically try to plug it back in while riding in the dark from Seal Beach to Downey in the fast lane of the 605. I finally tore the plug apart and individually soldered every wire. That was just one of many, many, wonderful things that Lucas could do. The new electrical stuff doesn't even come close. :razz:

The nology coil is out standing,I havn't finished tuning yet,but when I added the coil I went from rich to way lean on the pilot as soon as I fired the bike.I'm also running the nology plug wires which probably helped out alot.It's to cold now to tune,or try to get it close to dyno so I'll have to wait till spring.I got them at new bonnie for $75.
