Re: SAD NEWS ONCE AGAIN---but not daunted too much!
IMHO befote taking big bits off is this: before taking big bits off and epmtying your wallet use some Forte engine oil flush. Now i used to be very sceptical about oil / engine additives until a frienf recommended Forte. Leagues ahead of the other retail brands but that's the problem, Forte don't sell retail, only to the garage trade. However it does cure piston to cylinder sealing problems caused by lacquer build up around the rings and grooves. You can find it available in some places though inc. you know where on the net. Pour it into engine with the old oil stil in, tickover for 25mins and drop it out and fill her with new oil. If it cures your problem all well and good, if not you haven't spent too much before bigger bills.
Quadcamboy? Has anyone seen 3 camshafts lying around anywhere?
