hi again,
have drained sump of oil (lots).put 4 lots of redex in bores and with new N4C plugs the bike started
at 3rd kick.miracles do happen..
bike probably needs a run as it is still wet sumping or could the oil pump be the problem?
thanks for your continued help..

hi
yes I did post 2 weeks ago but unfortunately dated the bike 1958 instead of 1959.
I followed the advice regarding new plugs and petrol but as I am 70 years old this
year I am struggling to get under the bike to locate the sump plate.
I will gird my loins and try again.
thanks

hi,
my triumph speed twin is very difficult to start and when it does eventually start is  smokey.
it has been used very little during the last 10 or so years.
have put new plugs in and also new petrol but starting is still painful.
I wonder if the valve timing needs checking?
any help with problem appreciated
thanks

hi
have had above bike for ten years but unfortunately it is rarely ever used due to difficulty in starting.
followed instructions in manual but I can spend 30  mins  and bike still will not start.
on the few occasions bike  eventually starts it is smokey and loses oil via pipe underneath.
have changed plugs and oils but problems still exist..
any helpful advice appreciated.
thanks
stuart
