An "almost fair" review Ash.

I kicked him out because he refused to change his behaviour and stated that he didn't need a "low traffic site like this"  :(

Low traffic maybe, but what the marketing world would call "a goldmine of interested parties"  :)
Didn't know you'd kicked him out Steve, thought he'd left in a strop after good old Bitsa gave him both barrels!

Wouldn't surprise me if he's still on here lurking under a different name.

He can only do that with a different email and IP address.

Got the engine cracked open. Primary chain is past replacing too. One of the cylinder studs snapped despite soaking it for 24 hours. Well that's just perfect. What's the story on replacing one of the casings, that is a no go right? This is the first time i'm working on an engine, other than mopeds. How do you guys measure crankshaft shells? They look fine, but have 42.000 km behind them.

Crankcases are matched pairs, if shells look good 99% of the time the are good BUT MAKE SURE THEY STAY IN SAME PLACE.
Where did stud shear? careful drill out or spark erosion for removal

Thanks Bryan. The stud snapped at the base of the casing. I'm taking the parts to work for cleaning in our parts washer, maybe i'll try an see if i can drill it out.

Start small and work up to size preferably with a pillar drill
