Valves all adjusted, engine turning normally and closed back up.  Now just to wait on some parts and fasteners my former dealer seems to think I could do without.   Turns out center air deflectors have to come on the slow boat from the UK, but considering the bike has been at the former dealer since June another few weeks is no big deal.

A big THANK YOU to Jan for the tutorial and to everyone who answered questions.

If you can run/use the bike at this stage, I would, just to go through a couple of heat cycles and check for oil leaks around the cam cover for example. This is one of the downsides with a bike with tupper ware, once all that is put back on, you may not notice a leak until some time later, then you have to remove it all again to sort out a gasket/seal.

I would like to check things out but I'm missing the two forward bolts for the reed valves, along with the air deflector they also secure, and the two bolts at the lower rear of the airbox.  I don't know how long those items have been missing but I'd rather not run the bike without them. 

I intend to reassemble only as far as necessary for it to run (gas tank and battery) and check for leaks without the plastic on as soon as I can.

Instead of starting a new topic, I figured because this was done so well, I'd add to it.  I am in the process of completing the valves and many other things. During a search, I came across Hermy's Tire and Cycle.  They have a complete service kit (gaskets, spark plugs, filters...etc).   I ordered from Hermy's on Thursday and my package arrived yesterday afternoon and I'm more than 1/2 way across the states from them....for $209.27 including shipping.  Sorry local guys, this was too good to pass up.  Thought I'd pass it along for anyone who is doing this service.

 Because of the pandemic, I have tried to source parts locally.  Before I ordered from Hermy's I called my nearest Triumph dealer.  There are a couple parts that come with the Hermy's kit that I didn't need (cam gear to cam bolts, for one) and still, the cost from the dealer was $246USD before tax and the air filter was at least a week out.


If interested, go to Hermy's site and click on the Triumphestore (not superstore).  Then you have to click All Models. Nothing is in order (to block bots?) but it's all there.  In the parts search bar, enter Engine Service and scroll down.

You can also find the same part number for the service kit and search places like Amazon if you want.
Triumph 1215 Trophy Engine Service Kit T3990022
Cost was under $150 from Amazon

Just an option
