Default Re: I had a breakdown today...

Okay, here we go.... Laptop live in the garage today.

In have pulled the head and jug, and the news isn't good. The lower piston ring was broken,and there's a large fragment unaccounted for.. it quite likely dropped into the crankcase, I see no sign of it around the work area.

On top of that, the piston and cylinder are both pretty badly scored from the second ring down in a couple of places. Here's pics pf the piston:

Pics of the cylinder next post.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
