British Bikes / T 100 oil feed return problem
« on: March 04, 2019, 05:32:54 PM »
I have just started my T 100 after a 5 month lay off repainting frame new rims/spokes etc

 it went second kick no problem but I cannot see the oil returning to the tank,

I removed the return pipe and forced oil down it till it was coming out of the end another quick start and still no oil return ?

engine wise before the strip down it ran fine ,I have changed both oil feed pipes and rocker feed pipe for new items with fresh new oil

 and replaced the valve springs nothing else was touched engine wise I hope someone can help me out with this serious problem

Does anyone own or have experience of the above bike as I have just bought one, it starts fine and runs very smoothly at low revs when accelerating 15mph + the motor seems to die and not respond to throttle position
 when I shut off and come down to under 15 mph it all feels normal ? could I have an electrical breakdown or short maybe  ?

any workshop tips on re installing the front fork legs on my 68 T100

 I have compressed the main spring with cable ties and with gaiter and headlamp bracket on I can "manoeuvre" the whole leg just up into

 the underside of the top fork yoke but not just enough to catch the threads with the top nut

do I have to buy the Triumph tool as mentioned in the manual or am I missing the obvious remedy for this re install  situation  ?

all input very gratefully received

I know this is stupid question of the day as I type  however I am restoring my 68 T 100 and am stuck as to how I can remove the chrome fork shrouds that carry the fork stanchion oil seal I assumed there were small allan grub screws on the lower tapered section but upon clearing away 50+ years of road DNA these are what looks like small tapered rivet's ?
 hoping someone can guide me on removal of these items

I have a T 100 68 and notice the ammeter needle  ( Lucas type) stays in the centre of the dial just fluctuating left to right very slightly even at cruising speed 50/60 mph,

 with the engine running and multimeter on the battery I get a constant reading of 13 + volts am I to assume the ammeter has had its time looks like the original from 68 or can it be overhauled

PS after a ride the battery always shows in the region of 12.7 +

I hope a member can advise me I have a T 100 first registered 21-5-1969 frame No. H65380  engine No.H39492
 am I correct in thinking that after 20-5-2018 I no longer need to tax or MOT my bike ? I have just received a letter from DVLA to say my bike must be taxed and MOTd ? or placed on SORN.

  We have just moved from Spain to Wales after 20 years so I am very out of touch with UK legal requirements
   all input gratefully received.

I have just become the proud owner of a Triumph T 100 S 1968 I want to do an oil change on engine/gearbox/primary
I am clear about the engine oil but how do I change the gearbox oil ?
there is a nut underneath the motor which \I think is also a gauze filter does this drain the g/box then is there a level outlet for the G/box ?
as for primary is the chain tension nut at the rear of the left side case the correct drain plug ?
also am I correct that the g/box takes hypoid 90 oil and the engine and primary take 20/50 oil

all input gratefully recived
