always take the advice of a nurse ;

Thanks Nurse Julie
Do you know what the piston to bore clearance is at present?  It depends on what the clearance is as to what size over you need to go. It's no good going +. 50 if the bores are already worn up to near, or over . 50 already. I'm assuming the clearance is well within spec at present 🤔

Nurse, nurse...….yes, its an assumption that the bores are ok, I need to somehow beg, borrow or steal a measuring device to check the internals.

It'll be stiff because of the O ring.
