    Hi all,
    My father has an Armstrong Siddeley AS1 that he is restoring. His first engine was a Petter A type, so the diesel was going to be a challenge. It was bought seized but allegedly the cylinder was kept full of oil to preserve it. When the piston & bore broke company, the bore was full of water but the piston had been near tdc. The barrel is pitted and so is 1 valve seat. Is there any thoughts on repair, I think as it is a blind bore it would be very difficult/expensive to repair. Are spares available anywhere, searching the internet doesn't reveal many matches to Armstrong Siddeley.
    Can anyone advise?
    thanks,
    Simon
