I know that you all are like me and have years of project stuff squired away in boxes, cans and jars. I need a couple of small things I just don't have. I have a 1966 Triumph T100 project. It came with the original AMAL Monoblock but the bowl cover and three screws are missing. I am going to need one to make it work.

I am also going to be fitting points. The points cam seems pretty good with no slop but one of the springs is missing. I tried ordering a new on but it is too big. I am looking to buy your worn out T100 points cam with springs.

Those float bowl covers are often found to be warped and will leak. A friend made a small fixture to lap them flat. I have a small quanity that have been done if you can't find one local (I'm in California).

The clear window float bowl cover looks cool. It reminds me of the clear cover found on some Ducati bevel drives.

I have never had much to do with the Monoblock. We had a customer with a Norton Atlas and it had a Monoblock with a shared float bowl. It seemed to never work right. (It had magneto issue too so there's that.) The one I have is surprisingly complete except for the cover.

I was just checking here before resorting to ebay.

Jim,

I think I might have a spare Monobloc spare bowl cover or two. I will look this weekend and let you know.

by the time you're done cussing, you know you will end up with a 626, so, do you want to mess with the mono?

I have two complete monos of {I think t100} sitting here

and i have {somewhere} a new in wrapper point spring, as well as a box of point plates and advance units. I can set you up for a couple good beers plus shipping

OK, so I bought a Monobloc off ebay that has a bowl cover, screws, and air cleaner (of sorts) and a cable (foe measuring purposes). I paid $48 so As they say, "a fool and his money."

I appreciate the offers and the advice.
