That is some remarkable work.  The detail and finish are superb.  What a wonderful project!

Thanks for your kind comments.
Assembled all the internals, adjusted the tappets (more like keyhole surgery than fitting) and turned it over, much to my relief all was well, then set it up on the lathe and slowly stated to run it in raising the revs bit by bit.
I now need to order the ignition components.

Your Triumph engine is an impressive looking piece of machinery. Waiting to hear it burst into life.
