PostSubject: Today I have been mainly............   Tue Feb 27, 2007 4:17 pm

this afternoon i decided to strip down the bugs engine
(ive been feelin like crap cos of this flu bug for a week & today was the 1st time i felt upto it!)




As expected by the amount of smoke it was producing, 2 cylinders had broken rings affraid

& so the bores/pistons were scuffed & beat all to f*ck!

tomorrow i plan to split the case, clean it out, fit new crank/cam bearings & slap it all back together with new gaskets throughout
