Phil I have the one I bought in from Italy several weeks ago, haven't had time to check it over yet, would need to check belts are on and timed up before trying to turn it over by hand and then on the starter motor.
The earliest I can get to do that is probably Friday
Also need to check if its a 5-speed or 6-speed and what clutch is fitted

I wish I could return the favour you did for me at Donny. Thanks again Phil, those pads I had in were slightly past there best. Good luck with your search.

Thanks Kev, Simon. development today. Big up to John Hackett at JHP Coventry for donating a good used piston to me and offering me his hone for the barrel.

Measured the crank and rods and decided they were close enough to spec so polished the crankpin journal and fitted a new set of shells all seems good so far. Crankcase halves are back together, heads revamped and re shimed. I'm confident that it will last to end of season, should be running by the weekend.

Shall be on a mission to claim back some lost points at Cadwell, Andy Challis' friend had quite a good pic of the smoke bomb I would like to see it posted if possible.

So in summary I think I'm all sorted.
