The timing cover looks different that's for sure, the breather bulge at the back and the boss at the front have been welded on. The oil tank looks suspiciously like a one gallon GP item, the head must be fitted with manifold adaptors, mustn't it?
It needed a bit more than that but the engine runs great and was running on methanol which was fast.I don't know too much about triumph engines but it is a 650 with mount everest pistons and race cams.
I had to install all the kickstart stuff as it did'nt have any,and made sure i could kick it over and start it which i did.
I've rejetted for petrol and have a BTH Magneto to fit.I'm going to run it with no lights so no headaches there.
As i havent got any history with it ,i've had to get it dated from the frame number by the triumph owners club
who have issued me a dating certificate so i can get a period reg.WHich should be soon.And i can't wait.
So, all you Triumph men out there who couldn't resist looking any way, what do you reckon it is/was ?
