Hi i,m writing in to see if anyone might have a link or suggestion where to find a Free pre 1970 wiring diagram. The one in my old Haynes and Clymers just are not showing whats actually on my bike. If not maybe suggest a good Manual the covers the twins from 1967 to 70 i can purchase.

I,ve searched and read many threads and then found posts that have a linked image of diagrams but they are unable to open.

Don't think BB allows non-secure domains anymore.

http://www.motobrit.com/.... etc

Needs to be https:

1970 Commando - 'Bruno'
1967 T120R - 'Caesar'
1968 Lightning - 'Dora'

I edited quinten's URL's, they pointed to an unsecured page
the image is now pointing towards the secure image which is a difference

the britbikes picture tab shortcut does not start with an https , only http ?

i can sometimes massage a link by adding the S ... or adding a jpg. ...
Or subtracting part of the link after the jpg . ... OR even resizing
but this is becoming harder with less productive results .

i often see the hotlink jpg. in preview only to see it not post as expected .

whats the trick ?
If I can post a JPG here , all can see .
if I post a JPG link ... you must leave this site to see it .
( which is great if you're trying to drive traffic off the site )
But counterproductive to adding content for britbike .

how can a jpg. be Insecure ?
I realize it's probably quite a job nowadays , keeping a web forum secure ,
There seems to be a lot of malicious players out there with less then good motives .
but if you cant hot link jpgs. the site risks becoming less interesting .

is there possibly a way to allow less secure hotlinks as quarantined content ?

If it’s a jpg, you could always save the image and upload it to the forum, for a small membership fee your account can be upgrade to include such privileges.

It’s those small membership fees that help to keep the forum up and running and far in the way advanced over other forums.


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug

AFAIK, the shortcut tab prefill of http: is a throwback that needs updating by the forum software folks.
The rise in SQL/database hacks is driving more platforms to implement https:.

I think it has to be .jpg, not .jpeg. Many platforms will accept both extensions. Not this one.
It may be something that can be set in an extensions file or it may be a restriction that got set way back in olden DOS days (8.3 character file format).

>>i often see the hotlink jpg. in preview only to see it not post as expected .
There is a list of terms (say, "BSA") the site rewrites as a separate link to provide an external click-through. For revenue purposes I think.
The link rewrites when posted, but not in preview.

Thanks Quinten, Both links opened for me and this diagram is better then what i,m using, Hopeing to find one that has one Brown/White wire going directly from Zenner Diode to ignition switch.

I was trying to open a link from Post #701489 by Kommando. I,m a paid member but will not open for me. Using advanced search cannot find it, I,ll try to use full editor to send the whole thread which may help to show what kinda link which will not open.

I think i,ve found what i,m trying to confirm from the Triumph workshop Manual from Kermit, I would just like to have a wiring diagram that can reflect correctly with my model and year. After 40 years without power on this bike i,m anticipating problems once a new battery is installed

Full editor did not work for this type of file

morgan pointed out that what I was trying to post was not addressed to the image file
but the address to a page that contained the image file.
I get this and don't get it at the same time.
let's see if this will post.

in your test above you have four samples

The first is correct with the image tag but incorrect cause it uses http url instead of https
the second row lacks the imp tag and uses http
the third lacks img tag but uses the correct https
the fourth is fully correct.
hope that helps you in your understanding

it does help , but im a slow learner with a limited skill set .
sometimes my brain sees what im thinking and not what my eyeballs see .
My Samsung tablet does the heavy lifting and I've stumbled upon one or two of its secrets .
It used to be a lot easier for me to snag and tag an image file .

you have a slightly tougher protocol here , than in the past
and more and more sites are protecting their images from being hot linked .

btw , there used to be a command line... to center an image , or move it to the left or right .
are these still available ?
I can sometimes get the image:center command to work ... but not often
( maybe only smaller images and be moved ? )

Here are MM's booties centered.

One way is to use the full editor, invoke the text align center, then place your image within the text tags.
