I have fitted the kit on my T140 works a treat BUT where they put the breather is no good it cannot breath. Had to split crankcase and drill and fit a 10mm spigot in front of case where it fits into frame. I am in bookham leatherhead if anyone wants to see what I have done
 
can this electric starter kit be installed on my 72 daytona 500?

I have been "studying" this after market ES kit. I saw a video on their web site that briefly showed a circular jig bolted to the primary housing after its primary cover was removed. Into the circular jig a hole saw of unreported dia was used to machine the pocketed feature from the case face. They also made reference to welding up 3 or 4 tiny tiny case thru holes allowing case pressure to be plugged "off". I have a 78 T140 E that I wanted to do this to, but the more I investigate unless I misunderstand, that this would be a wonderful addition to my 78 given I am 68. But it's starting to sound like this addition can't be done with the engine in the frame. Didn't they offer this piece of required manufacturing/fabrication information prior to investing in the kit? best regards scott in new mexico

If this is done, also the drive side main bearing is fitted with a seal? If so, the engine is being reverted to pre 70 crankcase venting, separate from the primary. It was only 70 onwards that twins vented the crankcase through the primary (originally to atmosphere, 78 onwards into one airbox).

Give me a call on 07402223755 l have fitted one on my 78 T140 l will tell you the pitfalls. More to it then what Shropshire tell. Once done it works well.

Honker I would love to speak with you but my phone is on my brother,s plan and the last time I called england to discuss another ES kit that simply used a new timing case cover and sprag and pinions. But even though you would be building an ES kit like the triumph factory devised, lots of opinions thought trying to start the machine through the timing gears was a recipe for breaking timimg gears when the bike back fired from a novice trying to start the bike. the kit uses L F Harris parts and is around $ 2,200 USD if I recall. I have posted in great detail on this subject of trying to find the best after market ES kit. Sure wish I could visit your bike.

Rudie this kit works of the clutch side so kit comes with new clutch basket belt drive, starter motor goes under carbs. Problem is the breather where they put it it does not work you will have to split crankcase to drill for the breather. I found this problem after l had rebuilt the engine so not happy. I think if Shropshire told the truth about the breather they would not sell many.
