      Hi Techshare26,

      Looks like you have some carb problems. I'd be glad to help. This new format won't allow me to snip, and I guess others are having the same problem. The repeated dialog makes it hard to know who is writing. contact me off line at: gandrews2@...

      I have extra carbs if you are needing parts. I am now in calif.

      It's NOT one carb.   There are 4 total on the 1200.  One for each cylinder.

      Thanks. I was hoping to somehow stay away from doing any major adjustments to the carb before I actually got it running again. That's actually sorta what put my bike out of comm for so long. I had taken things apart to do what I think was a valve adjustment. However, I never did it, and just took it apart and left in a carboard box in garage with the bike. I think I lost a few screws along the way too, but was pretty sure the carb itself was intact as it was when the bike was running OK.
      Is there anyone selling or any way to get my hands on this service manual without spending a lot of $$$? I have the haynes manual (and the one for the older trophy which I mistakenly bought years ago), but I never did get this TSM or the "GBoH" (whatever that is?).

      It is also IMPERATIVE that there is the correct amount of FREE PLAY (3mm) in both the Choke and Throttle cables.

      If there isn't enough free play the you won't know when the choke or throttle is fully closed which will affect adjustments to the slow running screw on the carbs

      GBoH #2162 or the Triumph Service Manual fully cover the carb synchronisation - which needs to be done (with the fuel tank removed) when the engine has reached normal operating temperature.
      It assumes all other things are done correctly, such as Pilot Air Screws and Needle Valve positions identical in all (properly cleaned and serviced) carbs, valve clearances, spark plug gaps, air filter, cable free-play and using an auxillary fuel supply

      Just saying...
