Thanks Mark ! Now, to look through my stash and see if I can find a decent 12 degree AA unit. I do have a Pazon ignition for it but am leaning toward points for initial startup and running right now.

I'm putting a Pazon in my 71 T100R, I was hoping to have the bike on the road about a month ago, but some other non bike related issues happened, what about clutch adjustments, I have new plates and springs and have it pretty much straight, just how much can it be rode without the primary put back on if I want to do some tweaking to the clutch

Thanks Red. I am working on the gas tank now as well as the oil tank and side cover. I should have the AA unit installed in the next day or two.

Missed the collection time at my neighborhood drop off yesterday, so you'll likely receive it Saturday.

Proper 12 degree AAU installed as well as the points plate. This was done after bringing the assembly to 38 degrees BTDC, confirmed with both valves closed on RH cylinder, pointer on primary cover pointing to line on alternator rotor aaand timing tool dropped in slot in crankshaft located at the timing plug at the rear of the cylinders.


Getting closer !!

Slowly but surely getting things done. Next task is the oil tank.


Gas tank with base coat of silver.

[Linked Image]


Side cover/toolbox stripped and getting ready for some filler to be applied. I hammered most of the deep gash/dent out from the backside.

A PO had cut the middle of the toolbox out with snips or something facepalm I just used my Dremel to clean up the jagged edges and leave it be.

Got the Bondo applied. There are two layers applied so far to the large dent on the oil tank and I will do another layer on it tomorrow for good measure. There is quite a bit of sanding that has been done up to this point !

Lookin' good, Jon! The joys of salvaging these old bikes, bit by bit.

Re. Bondo, maybe you do this already ... to cut down on sanding, I use a SurForm file before the Bondo is fully hardened, to shave down the excess before sanding. HTH smile

Thanks Kurt ! I do have the files to cut the Bondo down but just using 80 grit on it for this job for starters.

Hi Jon,

'Fraid I've only just seen this post; frown advance apologies if you've solved the problem already.

An educated guess says the coils in your pictures are Lucas 17M12 or pattern? When I was building up my T100, I also encountered problems fitting a US-market tank over 'em. frown Afaict, the problem is - certainly on late-1960's US-market tanks - Triumph sized the "gas tank recesses" for the "Siba 32,000" coils listed in the late-1960's parts books; however, while 17M coils appear to have been Lucas's '70-on response, the Lucas coils have the ridge around the terminals end that the Sibas don't appear to have.

That said, I didn't fiddle around too long with a US-market tank; the UK & General Export tank has bigger recesses (the Lucas MA coils are fatter), as well as being an Imperial gallon bigger. Unlike other Triumph ranges, certainly '67-on C-range UK&GE and US tanks don't look dissimilar (unless you have the two side-by-side) so the bigger tank doesn't look obviously out of place on a US-market bike.

Originally Posted by Jon W. Whitley

Nevertheless, even with the bigger tank/recesses, I still had fitting problems with what were then being peddled by the trade as "standard" spacers. facepalm In the end, I fiddled around under the tank for a ridiculously-long time (would've been quicker to take the engine out, measure and refit the engine cool ) to calculate the length of spacers that gave the same clearance between frame and coils and between coils and tank. This might also be an option with your bike's tank?

Btw, if the coils in your pictures are Lucas 17M12 or pattern, the "coil clips" in your picture aren't 99-1052. 99-1052 are sized for the fatter MA coils and, when used with the smaller 17M coils, the gap allows for some anti-vibe padding between coil and clip. Not sure what those similar-looking clips that actually fit 17M coils are, they weren't used on '70 UK&GE bikes with '70-on 17M coils; the British Cub parts company Greystone Enterprises sell 'em, so it's possible they were originally intended for mounting 17M coils on Cubs?

Hth.

Regards,
