This is another thought, I have owned my TS for over 30 yrs and before the refurb 2 yrs ago it was standing for about half it’s life in a corner of the garage and the one of the problems I had was with the clutch. Now, the interesting thing is the clutch runs in the trans oil but it’s not completely covered with oil and sitting as it did for 15 yrs a part of the clutch cassette was above the oil and somehow it got rusty. The rust was a bit odd, I have not seen rust like it before, it was furry like cotton wool anly stronger. I also had some of this rust on the cam plate round the kickstart mech. Now I know this might not be how yours arrived at your problem, but, thought it was worth a mention. Take care Alan
