Why until recently ... A technique we should know?

yes, i stretch the expander ring nowadays chris (the one in between the 2 oil control rings) and then test-fit the piston with only the oil rings fitted, and if you can feel them "dragging" in the bore, then you have a guaranteed non smoker/non oil drinker (been doing our kart engines at work over the last couple of months, with 100% success so far :))

Sounds like a plan, shame its my daily and I haven't got time to have the engine out :(

Bought a couple of things for the vibe, will put pics up once they arrive...

In other news a nasty banging noise has developed around the front drivers side wheel area so going to look into that

Right job list for this week

Bump strip glue needs removing
Knocking noise needs finding and fixing
12v power source needs fitting
Exhaust needs sorting

Will probably get most of this done friday/saturday
