    sounds like your fared well, SemoT - they don't give warnings on no insurance or proof of here in Texas! "no card, but have it? ... u can tell it to the judge!"

    cabbage fares well down here in a fall garden. but it likes cooler temps of fall/winter season. looks like some nice sized cabbages there FS. any over 10#? bigger?

    I like cabbage! cooked, rolled, stuffed or cole slaw!

    not too big on sauerkraut, though! ~

    the old Triumph co quit production in 1983. couple years later under new management and new production methods the new company emerged. they kept some of the old classics and lines and added more modern designs to compete with the competition. they have done pretty well. do u know what year that is SA?

    found a copy avail of the original Owner's Manual for the '79 Bonneville. this real mcCoy offered at $115 + shipping. the repro exact same pages, $10, free shipping! it came today. ebay. with the two tech books now in hand appears will be taking a look at the filter at the banjo where the fuel comes into carb from either main, reserve, or both. new OE avail for $9 ea. but I think they will be cleanable. interesting to learn how the Triumph's charging system converts the alternating current to DC current... and what components are involved and where located. the Amal carbs for the 750 has 4 circuits... idle to WOT! from the bloke book:

    idle is tick over
    instant throttle response is snap acceleration

    I even found a typo, too!

    '...as a petrol-air mixture through...'
    ...as a petrol-air mixture through...


    lol

    OE $115.00

    repro: $10.00

    really do like having copy of the 79 Bonnie's Owner's Manual. :D

    today on eve news they had interviewed an area resident in that detour thru neighborhood. he said yesterday he made a trip to Channelview. normally a 10 min roundy round. took him hour and 20 mins to make the trip today!

    I said to the 'bee this morning, ah heck - those barges din't hit the other side road's supports! cross over the lanes and get it going again!! tonite, they said... no damage to other side of bridge, going to cross over traffic...once barriers, etc in place! maybe I should have been a civil engineer? lol :rolleyes:

    in any event, it will still be a nasty bottleneck!
