Engine stripped, big end required adjustment. Upper half of big end had worn to the extent the oilways had almost gone, these have been re-cut. Valves were ground and seated. Little end bearing had worn in the rod, location pins were removed and the bearing re-fitted. Cylinder, piston and rings in good condition.
