Cheers I tried him last night but couldn't get through, will try again shortly.

The scoring its too bad, but it's bad enough that if you drag your nail around the cylinder it catches. Taking the pistons out tonight so will have a better idea of any damage then. On of the crank seals has gone so will replace that.

PS spent 2 hrs trying to fabricate a puller and find some bolts that fit the flywheel before giving up trying to remove it without the correct tool. Only went and then Lent on the flywheel in frustration and noticed it move, it just lifted more or less straight off!! Lesson learned, try with hands before pratting about looking for a tool for hours!

Spoke to Steve, top guy. Will post some updates once I've finished the strip down and Steve's had it.
