Hope you washed your hands after using that keyboard! 😉

Probably not!

Nice cheap cast piston in the hope that the cylinder will take another bore.



Cheers,

Well, I got lucky.

The cylinder took another bore to 67.50mm:



Crankshaft rebuilt. Just need to raid the stash for new bearings and the rebuild can begin!

Oh, and Pete's IT250J cylinder gets its first bore and new piston.



Many thanks to Steve Riley of Piston Broke Engineering.

Holm Oak acorns.

Bird food, squirrel bait and strangley can be used to grow Holm Oak trees!
