That setup is a lot more complex than I thought.
Good for you Sea Dog for coming through with the great pictures TUP TUP
I'm a great believer in taking lots of pictures and making drawings - before and during. Unless you do this every day you soon forget the order of things.
A picture is worth a thousand words - or in these cases - a poor memory :y2:

Now that was an expensive motorcycle to go racing on in those days. must have been great fun though.

Getting a bit off topic now ... but it was fun, we was young and the kids hadn't arrived yet.

Not only for motorcycle work, Rocky I have a folder with photos of "Hidden Building Stuff", it's full of photos of pipes in the ground, wiring behind plaster etc. If a problem arises years later I know exactly where to dig that hole!

TUP TUP I agree with that 100%.
I have a filing cabinet with folders filled with all sorts of similar stuff.
My kids laugh at me for all this record keeping, but it's there if and when I need it.

I fully agree. P1010076.jpg I did take pictures, and put every assembly in a seperate plastic bag with notes as to what it was, and the orientation. The first time I rebuilt her back in 2003 I had a notebook of drawings, since digital cameras were not as easy then.

Digital cameras sure have made things a load easer for us, even doing drawing could present a challenge after a bit of time has past especially if your artistic level is that of what I have. It was great seeing the photos that SD posted on this as I had no idea that it was as complex as what it was until actually seeing the photos

Post-75 Triumphs were built starting from the rear brake lever and working outward.

Norton Commandos were built starting by attaching the horn to the innermost crevice in the chassis, then covering it up with all the other parts. The Mark IIIs got the big plastic airbox installed immediately after the horn!

Many thanks for this, I will have another crack, just put a brand new complete gearbox, bearings and sprocket in and this is what I got stuck on. Great photos to see whats what!
