Well, I'm going to finish this 8 year project after taking a 3 year "vacation" . My business has gone belly up, my income is zero, my social security will never cover it all, and I've got nothing but time on my hands. I started the 57 small mouth with OD (TS19909LO) today after 3 years since the last time I started it. It's a complete rebuild with new cam, refurbished cylinder head, 89 mm pistons and liners ( Weisco pistons, LA Sleeve liners)reground crank, and new chain and gears. When I first started it years ago, I ran it at 3000 RPM variable 1500 to 3000 for about 20 minutes to break the new cam in properly. That was 5 years ago. I ran it again once each year for a couple of years, and then walked away until today. It started right up, and ran beautifully! God, I love Triumphs!!. I thought I was 16 years old again working on my first TR3. I had a problem with the frame mounted fuel shut-off leaking but I'll deal with that later. I have some, (not crop duster or 2 stroke ) smoke from the down draft tube. I know the engine is new, and the rings haven't have time to break in, and three years dormant is not good but I'm concerned. Can I expect this to go away, get worse, or stay the same? I don't remember what's "normal". I went underneath the car to check for leaks, coolant, gas or oil and I actually impressed myself with the quality of work I did years ago on the body and mechanicals. I'm hoping this will be it and I will finally finish this.
