    Packer.... if you look closely you can see the oil lines head up to the “petrol” tank, which I assume is split to be petrol, and oil.
    A neat looking solution but must make the tank range lower.

    What do you plan do do with your restoration, as your 1970 model would have originally been oil in the frame? I see from your original photo, someone has fitted an oil tank under the seat.

    Nice n fat.

    You are correct sir, my bike, being a 1970 model (actually born June 1970, so 50 years old this month) is the last of the pre OIF bikes.
    Oil In Frame started 1971.... so your memory is correct.

    I’m doing a sympathetic rebuild rather than restoration as my bike came with later forks/front wheel, disk brake.... those bits are staying as the brake is better, and won’t cost me trying to find the original parts.... engine will stay as 650, but may get better alternator so I can run quartz halogen headlight, indicators etc.
    Also want to get the crank balanced once I get that far.

    Stay safe

    You'll need this book to see exactly what was fitted to your year bike - they used lots of mix n match stuff during those years.

    That talk of new barrels and pistons - would those be NOS, or is someone manufacturing them in the same way I've seen newly manufactured parts for BSAs?

    New barrels have been put on hold. I’m going to hone the barrels and fit new rings, as someone who knows more about triumphs than I ever will has taken a look, and that is what he suggested.
    There are new made barrels, much like they do for BSA’s.... new old stock may be out there, but finding it is the problem....

    I will update as progress occurs (slowly)....

    Well, the engine strip down Continues.....

    Sludge trap nearly full...... crank bearings DEFINATELY need replacing. ...... small end bushes need replacing...... will measure big ends next, but I think they may need oversize replacements.....

    The amount of sludge in the bottom of the crank cases was scary..... I’m glad I did not decide to run this engine as it was !
    Oh, the gauze filter on the bottom of the cases will NOT come out..... the nut is b*ggered, and won’t move ...yet!
    Heat to be applied when I get round to it.
