And? What is your question? Do you need a wiring guide? Is the bike stock? You might be able to get a stock wiring harness from British Only..

I wired my bike in about 2 hours from scratch.. If you want it to be stock, I would buy the harness. If not, start from the extremities and move toward the battery. Leave the wires long and never cut them too short. I like leaving mine a hair long because in time they tend to need new connectors.

Don't use cheap connectors, spend the extra money to get top of the line. The stock Triumph connectors are spendy..

If you are cheap and want to save some money.. go to the wrecking yard and strip the wire out of an old Lincoln or Caddie.. plenty of differnt colors.. use a good crimpper... The Craftsman Crimper is excellent as is the Snapon..

1968 bonnie. Tried to start the bike this morning after putting it away for winter. Put the tappets down to provide fuel and the gas just started pouring out the tubes coming out of the carburetors.

Hi, Jeff and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

My bike is burning oil,i have had a rebore,new pistons,piston rings,valves valve guides, valve springs,and new oil pump,and it is still burning oil mostly on right hand pot.i decided to check cylinder head...

You need to run the engine in gently for about 300miles gradually taking the sharp edges off the rings up to 1000miles and then it is run in. Until then oil will be burnt and produce smoke getting less and less as the rings bed in.
After the re bore the bores must be honed before rebuilding. If not, the rings will never seal correctly.
Use 30grade or 20W-50 mineral oil only.

I have a 1972 triumph daytona sport T100R with a boyer elec ignis

A sooty black (not oily) means that the mixture is either too rich, or the plug is too cold.

Either readjust carb, or go with a hotter spark plug.

Wired my delta 10" table saw for 220v and breaker on motor pops and it is wired to manul specs?

Not sure this will apply, but most motors that can be setup for either 110 or 220 will have leads inside the motor connection box that need to be reconfigured to convert the voltage. If you simply rewired the plug over to 220V, then you will need to redo the leads inside the motor as well.

Most oils are preferential, but don't use car or low friction special oils in your bike, and beware of detergent oils if you don't know the service history, they will break down in a bike and can dislodge accumulated crud. To be safe10/40- 20/50 Motorcycle oil for engine/ part synthetic if you like, but not a necessity sae 80s gearbox, Dot 4 clutch and prepacked branded long life coolant with integral lubricant for cooling.
