Just goes to show that there are so many parts that make up an engine and that if one of those fails then everything falls apart. Its a real shame that the issue from powder coating and now the liners have come into play.
Its one of those things I guess and I'm happy to have a cheapy Twink spark that you can get for peanuts. Mine is pretty good on the oil - so much so on 10w60 that i'm swapping back to 5w40 for summer.
I've been happy to read how everything has been handled and glad everyones worked towards a solution rather than bickering and petty working ethics to try cut down on cost.
Think if my engine decided to spit a piston ring out i'd opt for a cheeky 2.0 upgrade. But since the 1.6 is going so well I have no desire unless something terminal happens.
I hope getting the liners fixed, straightened and honed is the last issue you get engine wise and then the GT can do what it does best. Put a smile on your face.
I'll bear autolusso in mind when I need some work doing that my feeble hands can not cope with.
