Norman Nippy

hi roger,thanks for your words of encouragement,
it may not be too bad after all.Im going to have to inspect it closer inside the bearing cup.
ive already araldited the oil feed to the casing and it seems pretty strong.
if as you say it is a common solution to the problem then i shall feel a bit better about it.Im just a bit concerned wether the material is breaking up and falling into the bigend chamber.

of course i could never give up,maybe i will have to change my viewpoint of a quick rebuild and strip the bike completely into seperate components and do a better job over a longer period,then again,if this repair is still solid,then perhaps there is nothing to worry about at all!

ill keep you posted,im too much of a Scottist to give up now!
