What do I leave myself wide open to, and, why have you quoted the rules for the for sale sections in your reply?

I'm not trying to sell anything  :-\

Ahhhh....I see. Sorry, James, I have obviously copied stuff previously and, for some reason, itís pasted itself there. Please ignore my nonsense. The thread where all of this crap was originally pasted has been deleted by one of the mods. Apologies.

I'm sure it must be against the forum guidelines to have such an insufficiency of cylinders. That's what he meant. :y

Given that the engine had run very poorly and no.3 did improve with the addition of oil, I wonder if it had been previously bore-washed.

Could I test the rings by say, filling the bore with a fluid and seeing if it disappears?

Thanks, Kevin :y

Yeah. A leak down test is usually done with compressed air, but I just wondered if there was any value in an overnight fluid loss type test

To tell the honest truth, my new meds don't seem to be having the desired effect.  :-[

Always best to hold your hands up and be honest in these situations.  :y

One of three things: Piston rings, valves or crack in the block. :y

No need to thank me  ;D

Well it isnít the valves. Sealed tight on no3.

Mark said rings are unlikely given the absence of oil burning

So I guess it points to....  :-X

Would such a crack be visible in the bore with the piston out?

Iím not against the idea of removing the pistons now Iíve come this far :y

How about taking the camshafts out, putting the CH back on the block using the old gasket and bolts, and doing a proper leak down test? There is a big difference between 200psi+ air and fuel/oil/white spirit and gravity. Plus fuel/white spirit will end up in the sump.
