Got a wild hair this morning and wrestled the engine back into the frame. I only outweigh the engine by 8 pounds, but finally outlasted it!

Quick question - is there anything that supports the carb/manifold/cleaner assembly other than the intake insulators?

Decided to see how the carbs and filter looked on it. Fuel lines need another 150 degree banjo, so that is on order.as well as some 1/8" stainless tubing for the oil pressure gauge. I'll run nylon from the frame to the gauge on the handlebars, but don't trust it near the exhaust and copper work hardens and cracks too easily. Used the lathe to modify the 1/8" tube compression fitting to adapt to the 5/16" NF port to the oil galley.

Hi Pid----about half way down the rear down tube of the frame there is a lug that sticks out forwards .
The lug has a blind hole in it from the top.
There should be a small rubber buffer that sits in the blind hole.
The air filter is supposed to rest on top of the rubber buffer.
HTH.

Thanks! I'll have to order one of those bumpers.

EDIT: On order.

Air cleaner buffer and crankcase to air cleaner tube installed. Oil tank and battery box installed. Oil line from tank to engine installed Major wrestling match this morning getting the new oil line through the old protection spring, but finally got it there. They sent 1/4" tube instead of 1/8", so I had to order that again. Exhaust header is off to a friend to get the hole in it TIG'd up.

Header welded up and the 1/8 tubing for the oil pressure gauge came in. I'll run the tubing up the front tube to the headstock, then splice to nylon tubing for the flex to the bars.

Starting the wiring. Ran replacement leads to the points, set the gaps, and did initial timing. The old leads were very stiff and had cracking insulation. Found an ebay front fender from a Honda (they think) that was cheap. It looks like I will be able to fit it to the Triumph with minimal modifications.

Been busy with other tasks, but did get to spend a few minutes on the T150 yesterday (before the Derby). Ran leads from the alternator plug to the reg/rect and from the reg/rect to the battery (which I don't have yet) also the sense wire to the key switch. Used woven plastic mesh loom cover on it that a fellow GoldWinger sent me from Canada.

Probably the last bit for several weeks. Chain master link finally came in, allowing me to remove the doubled concrete tie wie that was holding it together. I'm helping with a bike show this week in Sevierville and vacation preps and travel after that. Also have to prepare a nice flyer for our October 1st bike show at church. The bike will still be there and be just as needy when we return.

Well, I did pick up a part at the swap meet today. A Triumph horn! Lots of nice bikes at this show including a Triton and a reverse-head Bonnie.
