chrisf1 wrote:Hi again everyone I will say what I would like to do on my rebuild and am looking for criticisms, advice, and why, I am building another pre unit bottom end to swap out with the existing one in my bike which is dynamo cases with the dynamo hole blanked off and running an alternator it is also running the old school distributor which I dislike so I first wish to get the bike running again with this engine which before I pulled the primary side and gearbox off was running quite well, first problem, I would like to run without a battery (difficulty mounting with intended alloy oil tank ?), I intend to go with electronic ignition a new alternator (which one ??) as the one on it is suspect the red ignition light stays on when the engine is running ??? Next problem I am running an AMC Norton gearbox/clutch and wish to go for a dry primary belt drive should I go for a Triumph box for ease of final assembly or will the existing box not be a problem it does drip oil by the way what oil should it run on, well thats the start but it will be time lengthened by funds so suggestions of the best places for buying all of this would be a great help, I am in to deep to stop but unfortunately the pocket will restrict me so if anyone has any of the stuff I am looking for in good nick please contact me I already have 6T alternator crankcases and a big bearing crank and con rods (unit), rev counter timing chest, I am also considering a Morgo rotary oil pump ???? I will need camshafts E3134, timing gears. and possibly another (650 or 750) 9 stud top end, all advice, criticisms, and offers greatly appreciated, many thanks Chris
