Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

You've got a great start for a good lookin' chop! Good that you are gettin' that frame back in use - too bad hacksaws cut that frame tube, instead of pullin' the rocker boxes to get the engine out... Love that P&P girder, they ride so solid compared to a springer. I use the info I got from Paul Durf...

Re: Sarting your Trumpy for the first time...

When you are ready to start it, have the oil tank cap off(or nearly off) and as soon as it starts, check for oil return to the tank - may need a flashlight. No oil return means no oil feed. You can then check for oil flow to the top end by cracking an oil feed nut on the rocker box.

Re: Rear drum sizes

Short of going out and measuring one of mine, here is some info which may be helpful: Can you identify this mystery brake drum? It was found in a pile of K parts. The bolt holes match up with a K rear hub. The 46 tooth sprocket (odd) is non-removable (even odder) - it is part of the drum casting. Is...
