Could get a Nourish mainshaft, which come in 3 lengths and they're a copy of a Triumph mainshaft, but splined for a Norton clutch. I picked one of these up from Dave Nourish for mine.
The 1st time you spin the filter off the bracket will bend at the end of the angular gusset. These filters are better mounted to the inside of the engine plate using the mounts in the casting. They can be tucked up and out of the way. Are you are still opting for the spin on LP filter in the HP line or is it fitted scavenge side?Had a re-think for the oil filter and ended up moving it lower down behind the gearbox. Made this little bracket after cutting a template out in cardboard and got the folds the right way around as I made it from one piece.

Sits here now and these dummy lines have a smooth run to it.

Drilling those holes saved a fair amount of weight and I could tell the difference by feel. Painting just one small thing like this was a pain in the arse, but etched it and top coated it as before. Put a new filter on and fresh oil lines and it's ready to bolt back on. I'll lock wire the pair of cap head screws, otherwise its done.

Dave Nourish isn't involved at NRE any more and hasn't been for 3 years. Getting anything out of "new" NRE at the moment is a nightmare, slow and little stock, I am told.Could get a Nourish mainshaft, which come in 3 lengths and they're a copy of a Triumph mainshaft, but splined for a Norton clutch.

You can fit a single rev counter tacho and oil pressure instrument. Rev counters are analogue needle, digital speedo register and oil pressure reading. Complicated guts but simple layout in the cockpit, about £325.The bike was registered in 1972 as a Triton and is noted as being 'assembled from parts' on its V5, so that's why it's on an L prefix. Frame is 1961/62 so an early one really. Lucky it didn't get a crap 'Q' I guess.
Those wireless brake lights work from an accelerometer sensor and are pretty good. There's a few around now from £8 to nearly £50. The expensive ones look like they would fit into my tail light, but the cheaper ones won't.

Or maybe the year before!Bracket doesn't bend at all when a tight filter is unscrewed, so I'll be keeping it. It also comes off the scavenge line, which I'm sure I was asked about last year. Filter is a higher pressure type, so won't burst., aviation and Motorsport use them.
Yes, it's the same bike, life and my day job got in the way. I'm in no rush to finish it, but thanks for the comments.
