Thanks Brian, I have applied some penetrating oil to the bores, and will let you know how I get on. I’m pretty sure its the left hand cylinder that has been starved of oil, its the left hand side of the pilgrim pump that is dry, and on removing the spark plugs the left hand one is relativly clean compared with the right hand which is more sooted/oiled. If I can free the cylinder, will it require a total engine strip down or just a top end strip down to check for cylinder damage ? – Cheers Russell
