  11. certainly should have the fan behind the pulley start with makes sure all connections are clean , never/ do not mess with the control box brushes are sprung and retained in a carrier , if you lift the spring up and set its end to one side the brush with its wire can be removed if the brush has worn so much that the spring has no effort its worn out most manuals give the how to even have a look on you tube for clues Pete
  12. at £65 /ltr they know more about conning a profit than how these carburettors work or even read a triumph manual pete
