Well,im going to need a hel of a lot of courage for what ive just discovered!

You may remember a while ago i mentioned a stipped thread in the casing for the left hand bearing oil feed,having taken the carb off ive discovered that the whole of that area to a size of around 2 inches square is made up of metal putty.
i had a load of metal foreign matter drop out of the drain bolt but so far can spot no damage to the bigends.

im about ready to give up!
