    Hi lunmad
    Ive got a 1958 triumph 3ta and want to change the engine oil, how would i go about doing this?
    The oil all collects in the oil tank on the side, do i drain this or do i need to drain it from somewhere else?

    Back in the saddle (figuratively) I see! Good to have you back, but sad to hear to the family you have lost. My mother went some years ago. I am glad for the time I got to spend with here near the end. She too looked back over her life and said it was good. Will that be the end for you and I one day, or will some housewife get us as she's checking her phone and drifting into oncoming traffic? I guess we just have to make every day count since you never know.

    Hope the rebuild is going well. It's riding weather here in Texas now when it's not hail.

    Nice to see you again John. Question, is it legal to run the internal mufflers like the TT pipes had over there? sorry if I've asked before, my memory is shyte these days 😛
    Over tightened carbs making the slide jam? Yeah I know that hell well, the T120C is completely warped and needs the carbs sleeved or something.
    Sorry to hear about your Ma, at least she lived a nice long life.

  16. Volgnit says:

    This will be a good series. I know every nut, bolt, and washer on my Bonneville. Very nice engines to work on. But due to health reasons I tore my Bonnie down in 2010 to rebuild it. And only got as far as sandblasting and painting the frame and all the small bits before I had to stop. All the engine parts are greased well and I'm going yo attempt the engine rebuild since I already bought all the parts. Ah. I did put new big end shells in and fit the connecting rods after cleaning the sludge pipe out. Surprising the sludge pipe was clear after running the bike for 15 years between rebuilds. Modern oils and frequent changes I guess.Keep posting your videos are great to watch.

    Wow! I used these videos so much when doing a rebuild on my TR6C. Great to see it happening again, looking forward to many more to come.

    Crikey, where to begin … Ok, first off so sorry to hear about your Ma and your Sister, my sincere condolences. Bloody hell, it's rotten whether it's expected or not. As you say, somehow you have to just carry on, no better therapy than concentrating on getting that lovely bike of yours ready for that warm dry day we get every year! As ever I shall delight in following along. It would be nice to catch up in person, tons of news both sides I'm sure. As the length of comments here are restricted somewhat I'll sign off here and chat to you imminently. All the best mate 😀

    Hi John. Long time no see. The Bonnie is in for major surgery but she'll survive. That's what's nice about old Triumphs………….. they just never die. lol.
