|Conservation/ Maintenance History|
Stripping started in 2013 with the majority of the engine found to be inb fair condition but stuck through standing. Bores are clean with no water ingress but the pistons will require pressing out. Main bearings appear to be in good order as are big-end bearings. Salt water corrosion has badly affected the water passages though and both cylinder head skulls will require replacing.
