Nice Work !!
Did you Vapor blast the head to clean it?
Great thread. The more of these I read the more I realize my life isn't complete without at least one Meriden Triumph.
That is exactly my retirement plan old bean...
Excellent stuff Kev - I'm really hankering for a speed twin 5T around 1940. Of course not so sure my retirement plan is going to stretch that far ... but we'll see
PM sent - I find what you're doing very interesting. Sorry the collective armchair experts chased you away.
You bet I'll send you a PM. I was going to send my friend here, he is much into them old Triumphs but I know what the "Old Fool" thinks of this forum in general. I tought he could make an exception , I guess not we will have to follow along somewhere else.
sure wish you would reconsider .. a LOT of folks was enjoying and learning from your very well put together posts with clear instructions and clear pictures.
don't let the hecklers win .. grow thicker skin instead.. to me this is just a normal part of Adv. most forums are regulated way too tight. thick skin is the price to pay for a loosely moderated forum like Adv
What a shame. JM is for heckling, folks.
Take it there.
+1, that's ADV alright.
I wish you'd reconsider, too, the tech articles on British bikes are getting thin in this new century. I sure enjoyed yours.
OK, that's exactly the reason why we have
1) places like Jo Momma on ADV
2) the rule enforcing civility in the on topic forums.
It's a perfect example how asshattery, name calling and thread shitting can result in chasing good people off. Bans have been dished out now.
PM sent- it would have been polite and considerate if the trolls had retracted .....but I guess good manners are too much to ask for these days !
If only you got here earlier...
I know and I'm sorry. I've contacted the OP after cleaning up.
To the OP - I would urge you to re-consider your decision to abandon the thread - I know you sent a link to your blog to several folks (me included) but I really think a lot more folks would get more out of your re-build here on ADV
I do understand though if you don't want to do that...
I agree, we need these Brit tutorials, in my opinion

"When you are public, or outspoken, or a recognized expert in any area the wannabees come out of the wood work. That's just the way of life.
And they have no idea how hard you work to put together the photography and other materials that you show. Your friends, on the other hand, understand.
So screw the critics, and carry on. You doing good! "<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
Just found this and am sorry I missed the meat of the project!!!
Built championship winning small block Fords (Dry and wet Sump 2.15hp per ci, single four barrel cast intake, canted and inline valves) through the 90's.
I appreciate hand crafted machinery!!! and would never critique another machinist work, when it's obvious he knows his shit!
You sir do... thank you.
Some of you who were niggling the man should look in the mirror and try to find an ounce of respect in your eyes to show others...
