Haven't stripped it down properly to see how they look, but they move ok.

Mines no better, the tarp has been letting in water so, needs as much spending on machining as yours....



If you hunt around, you can get the internals all balanced real cheap while your at it....Idea

But i did have a look for ya Mark ! Smile

Thanks, appreciate you looking. Was thinking of having the bottom end balanced while the engine is apart. It looks like someone had jet washed this engine with the throttle valve opened and water ran inside the bores killing it over time.
Might have to strip it down completely and bring it to Chris Applebee Engineering http://www.applebee.co.uk/ to see how costly it'll be to save it.

Got one on my back door step that needs a new home - will take a look and post a pic.

It's not mine but will ask the owner as it needs to go.
