SE5A Project - Swindon

The only thing to report is that my spare engine is a rebuild and is also on +30 pistons. Which is a result. The bores still have their honing marks as well, so it has know here near the wear of my current engine. It does have a knock though, so it's time to strip it and try and see where the proble...

Of course the underlying issue might well be an ovalised bore, poorly aligned rings or just worn rings. Jim felt that he detected a small amount of movement of the piston in the bore - only slightly more than the two pistons either side - which have good compression. So the pistons will have to come...

SE5A Project - Swindon

So after the French trip we had an issue with low compression on one of the cylinders on my engine. Lots of vapour from the filler cap when up to temperature and more from the breather.
