    Are you hoping to reuse the pistons? Sounds doubtful to me. You could probably bore the liners in place and go oversize on pistons?
    Re the starting issues - valves, seats and compression ratio are just as important as timing. If the exhaust have recessed you'll need to put some seats in.
    Oops, missed that you had two of them out allready....

    Well finally got the last 2 pistons to move, one complete with the liner and the other has moved leaving the liner in place.
    Both have been left to soak overnight with more release oil.
    As I suspected No 4 big end has picked up but now the crankshaft is able to spin freely I am hoping the mains are OK.
    I will post some photos once everything is finally apart.

    Here is wishing Everyone Seasons Greeting and a Happy and Healthy 2020

    Yeah I am just to bloody obstinate to let it beat me, even if I cannot get new liners and pistons.
