  1. Alls well that ends well mate. Welcome to the forum
  2. Alright mate, welcome to the forum
  3. When you get your new chain and sprockets, buy a Scottoiler (or other such bit of kit) and your chain will last just about forever
  4. Alright mate, welcome to the forum and welcome to the great world of bikes Lovely bike btw
  5. Welcome to the forum mate. My mate owned a 440LTD back in the day and I always liked the look of them, but as I was/am into Triumphs I never got round to owning one
  6. Alright matey Welcome to the forum
  7. I would say you've found your problem then. If you have got the carb top unscrewed, try to get some wd40 sprayed into the carb body and then with a bit of patience, work the slide loose. Clean as suggested above, ensure cable runs free and refit. Cany help with the coolant through the carb question tho

    selling advice please

    As said above, sell it privately, then go back to the dealer and get a discount for no trade in. Quids in
  9. Disconnect the cable from the throttle housing and make sure it moves freely inside the cable housing (also ensure the throttle body is not sticking at the bars), if its free return it back to the throttle body, but dont tighten it all the way up. Try it and if its still sticking open the carb top and remove the cable and slide. Give the slide a light rub with 0000 grade wire wool and a light oil. With the slide removed from the carb, hold the carb top and twist the throttle, the spring on the carb slide should compress and return easily, if not thats your problem. If it does return quickly and smoothly refit the carb body and slide ensuring the needle is seated correctly and also the needle is not bent. As stated above, make sure the slide is fitted the correct way round. Sorry for the "sucking eggs lesson" but sometimes it better to begin right at the start.
  10. I would have a choice of two A 1958 Triumph T110 or a T160 Trident Unfortunately none of the two above are mine, but I live in hope
  11. Well, I just opened up the old unit and it is indeed, sealed in resin....bugger
