Hi everyone, been a while with regards to the sprint resto, so having fitted new timingchains, hoses, uprated rad to the triumph stag , i can now can crack on with the sprint, having taken the rocker box off , it revealed a lot of surface rust on the camshaft and followers,

so i think its best to do a complete rebuild , so head will be polished and ported , with a str91 cam and webber 45dcoe , this is the way forward i think.

regards paul
