Many Thanks to Boxbridge (Doug)

He helped me out a lot with my questions but looks to have solved the mystery of the left/right piston mix up :P

He suggested that the circlip from the pistons would probably be missing from the "outer" side, so that would determine which bore they came from =D>

As far as I can see the only reason for Winter is to get engines rebuilt :lol: Let us know how you're getting on..

I see I posted on 30th Oct to announce I had started stripping the top end :shock:

Today it ran for the first time , well after I had to put some more juice in the battery :oops:

Just let it warm up gently on drive but haven't taken it out yet !

So still early days until I take a ride out, but they have salted the roads around here today #-o
