Thanks Brian. I will be in touch. Any chance of popping one in a jiffy bag and posting it? Otherwise Marina or I could drive over to pick one up. As regards pistons, then as block bore age towards top oversize, then it is not so often we find a block so small that a worn oversize piston can be ground down to fit. It does happen, of course, but not so often. If we are lucky we really need a piston with reasonable ring grooves. We then have to grind the outside and usually rebush the GP bore. To do anything properly takes time which is no real problem if it is just your hobby and the time does not matter. If not it is uncomfortable to see the time ticking away knowing the customer must pay the going rate for the job.
Thanks for the lifeline, Roger
