    To be honest I don't know what I'm doing myself, I just take it apart, renew things that look worn and put it back together and hope it fires up again lol!
    I know a little bit though so any questions I'd be happy to answer Jams mate Very Happy

    When its all together and running you'll have that sense of Achievement that you had a go and did it Very Happy
    Or
    When you push the button and send the valves smashing through the piston and the crank through the sump you'll be sat there thinking why didn't I just give it to someone who new what they were doing lol!
