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.

The chaincase was a large lump to chew away at, but the result was worthwhile.
I could not find a suitable font file for the logo so ended up drawing it twice full size and then reducing to size, but then had to grind up a .020in engraving tool to get into the corners of the serifs.

Thank you for your very kind and encouraging comments, the gearbox plate and cover completes the build except for exhaust pipes which I will attempt to make from 22mm plumbing tube as I have a tube bender to hand and then get them chrome plated. I will have to strip the engine down and clean all the parts prior to rebuilding and adding gaskets and seals, also ignition components and then see if it will run!!!!!
