ok so i have had a go with a glaze buster tool and it has cleaned up the bore, but the mark is still there, so a re-bore is needed. I have seen piston sets advertised on ebay from crusinimage_uk at £99 per set. Anyone have experience with them? And also somewhere to get the rebore done to the correct standard.
Love the 500/4 and 550 own a 550 f2 at the moment

Trig always uses Cruzinimage piston / ring sets on all our customers engines that don't insist on OEM and also on our own engines. IMD (UK based) are doing .50 oversize pistons kits for £115.60. Look on eBay. But whatever you buy, you need to make sure the bores will clean up at .50 as you may need . 75 or even 1.0 rebore to remove the marks fully.

No Mick, I don't know anyone.... Other than the chap sitting opposite me at the dining room table, that being Trig 🙄🙄🙄 Send him a PM and he will sort it for you.

Thanks Julie, i was not sure if Graham did his own rebores or farmed them out. Once i can afford it i will be in touch.
