I was having a fantastic day on the Menai, as you can imagine from the conditions (see photo), when things went more than a little wrong with my motor!
As you can see from the pictures a small piece of metal broke of from somewhere and entered the top cylinder where it spent a while chewing the sh*t out of the piston, cylinder head and scoring the cylinder before stoping completely (fortunatly only 6 feet from a mooring bouy).
Has anyone got any idea of the cost of a rebore, piston kits, etc and what does it take to bend a conrod on one of these engines?
I´m basically trying to assess wether its worth rebuilding or just break it up and ebay the rest and then put the money towards a new engine. The cost of labour isnt an issue because I´ll rebuild it my self, but its over 10 years since I did this kind of thing and I´m out of touch with prices.
thanks for any advice
