I'm putting it out there. I will have the Triumph running within 2 weeks. On the road within 4. I have spent naps upon naps making custom hardware, grinding off the bolt markings, and polishing. Not show polish, just good go polish.
Jared came over and we timed the Triumph using the 7/16" piston drop measurement method. I feel it's not the most reliable way, so I went ahead and ordered a piston stop and devised a poor man's way of mounting the degree wheel to the crank. the piston stop I got apparently isn't even long enough. So I've ordered another. Hopefully by weekend this thing will be timed well and ready to put some fluids in.
