|Conservation/ Maintenance History|Installation
Installed at the museum in 2003 and run for 7 years. The bore was in poor condition when installed and suffered from excessive blow-by.
Liner and piston removed in the middle of the 2009 season as blow-by was excesasive. Liner sent for sleeving and boring to fit the skimmed piston.
