I have just fitted a new condenser and had a quick blast up the road and my "dying engine problem" has just disappeared
before my condenser arrived I did change the fuel pipes and have a healthy flow from each tap
I have a pos. earth on the bike same as my T100, so one less item to check ?
as for get rid now at the moment I am looking forward to a longer ride weather permitting or just get some "full wets" if anyone knows of any 19/18 inch hoops available in the Criccieth area ( part used will be fine )

thank you all for your input many many more stupid question to follow ..

thanks for the input Mark there is no choke fitted , the carb is a very new looking (shiny) Wassel I have removed it and blown it through very thoroughly all is very new looking inside and no debris was found
I checked the points gap (using dial gauge) and the setting was spot on points opening at 38* BTDC and a gap of 15 thou. at highest cam point
I started to check the electrics starting with battery pos. to main loom and could not get a reading
  from pos. to neg. via the battery which has a fuse inline on the pos.
 side still no reading from pos .earth to the battery neg. terminal nothing I could see the fuse strip was intact however when I took the fuse out of its holder it just disintegrated in my hand although it seemed brand new
so a new fuse fitted and it started with no hesitation
I have yet to try the bike on the road so I will post my findings.

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  ?

thanks for the reply's yes I was very careful with the rocker cover stud/nuts all torqued up and engine back in frame

MEMO TO SELF  far easier to remove rear engine plates before removing/refitting rebuilt engine

I now trust all print in my manual

I now have front forks installed ! I used quantum physics for 24 hours inside the Bosch collider to alter the sliders molecular structure and both legs just slid in like butter !

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
