Looking good.... In fact I am a little jealous.

As I said earlier I had one many years ago and if I came across one I would love to do one as a project.

Also the cowling over the headlight and forks is a feature that suits the bike and sets it off a treat, a bit of a Triumph trade mark.

Just listened to the sound you posted, although it sounds OKAY I reckon when you have set engine finer it will give you a beautiful note that I recall from years ago, it may just be the echo's in your garage/ balcony being picked up.

I noticed on my lads D1 it sounds lovely naturally but listening to it but on video it sounds a bit noisy... can't wait to hear it when finished and out in the open.

Your building up quite a collection ..3 bikes, very good you will need to extend your Balcony or find a shed.thumbs-up

125cc-175cc-200cc, your going up in cc's next a big twin... I started at the age of 14 with a 98cc New Hudson, went right up to a 1600cc Kawasaki. and a few weird and wonderful bits in between. 

Don't know if the engine is ok yet..just know that is firing up..dunno Will see, when ready to go on road.

As for storage, i am moving the finished projects to my Father's house, can't do something else for the moment..doh
I have to move the D10 also, when the Triumph is ready to leave the balcony...rofl

dimitriscy, I met Mike Estall last Sunday, he wrote the 'Triumph Cub Bible' book, he's an authority on the bikes and is the instigator I believe of the Tiger Cub and Terrier Register, I've emailed him about my two frames and I'm sure he'd like to know about yours too, just the frame number to start with.

He does dating certificates etc too, parts lists, data sheets, wiring diagrams, registration list etc.

PM me if you'd like his details.

Still waiting my wheel bearings, so did some more cleaning while waiting, and also had the front tire fitted (couldn't do it myslef...but i tried...embarassed)

Just noticed (better late than never), that my Zenith carb is missing the Pilot air screw!!!!
Maybe that is why engine's sound little was strange. Good thing is that there is in stock to order on my part's suplier ..thumbs-up

For the timing, i found very useful the tool that Mosoger (thanks Bob!) sent me..!
Found the Tdc,measured and then unscrew 0,4mm

Wheel just cleaned, and i used anti-rust on the spokes

Hi Dimitris.

You seem to have got the Four Stroke engine under control a lot quicker than the Two Stroke.thumbs-up

Did you have much fun getting the Tappets correct, ??. Can be a bit tricky just getting them right.

My lad seemed to struggle setting tappets, I suppose there is a bit of a knack in it.... 10 thou inlet & exhaust if my memory serves me on the Cub.

Better a little slack than tight...

I am still looking for my next project, there getting harder to find, thought I had a chance with a Norton but the owner has decided to keep it.fishing_gif

I didn't yet checked the clearances.unsureIt's on my plans. Yes it's 10 thou for both from what i remember reading.

I recieved my Hayned manual yesterday, that will be little more help...thumbs-up
My grandfather had a Norton..but don't know which model. Any Nortons are hard to find anyway...dunno
Was there any model used by british army?? Because will probably be that...

From the beginning, i understood that this would not be as easy as the Bantams...

Not only from the technical view...but from every view! 
Not so many part suppliers, and those who are the most popular and have everything, are lazy and unreliable...

Still waiting 2 packages that i ordered 3 weeks ago, and i am stacked.. and they cannot yet answer if they ship and when..dunno

As for the forums, allready tried 3(!), but with no success in getting some answers when i needed them... 
Also didn't find  detailed rebuilt information for the engine.

All this, made me to apreciate even more this Forum, the Club and all the members here! And also the Bantam part suppliers, which i dealed with, and they were all very helpful!

Sorry to hear the rebuilt is going slow, but you will get there, keep your spirits up,

I am sure that any questions you have, would be answered by this forum anyway, lots of this forum members use to or have a Triumph anyway.

Anyway, this will learn ya'h for buying a Trumphy, instead of another BSA.roflwhistleout-a-here

I found it hard to find a forum to support rebuilding a 6t Triumph. The triumph owners club forum was hugely disappointing.

The decent atmosphere and camaraderie on here little prepares you for what is on offer at some other sites, I've been on quite a few myself, that's why I return here, mostly.

I am going really slowly on this, but it was planted like this... whistle

Almost done now, only have to remove and clean the rear wheel assemply and replace the tyre &bearings. 

I must also fire it up, with the new coil, condenser, points(and timing) and if all is ok, i will replace the rectifier too.

I've just bought a new seat for mine, £110, a lot cheaper than buying old worn out parts and remaking an old one.

I saw this one last Sunday, better than a new one out of the factory, I think!

Nay nay Bob, seat is definitely mine, but, I only took the pic of the finished bike.

I have two rusty frames and three engines in bits so far, plus a new seat of course!

Hi guys. I wanted to add some more pics, of the nearly done T20.

Framewise is finished(ok, maybe except some metal polishing), all left is set the timing again and fire up...fingers-crossed

Of course, after cleaning, i had to move it from the blacony...no place for a bike!! So i brought it on the living room... i am sure it suits better there...roflwhistle
