It's the same cylinder that had the valve trouble and heat seized piston. Have put a hotter plug in hoping it'll bed in and sort itself out.

The bores and pistons look fine, it's on 1st oversize, not too bad for a 68 year old bike. The problem seems to be in the right hand combustion chamber, either the valves aren't seating properly, or the head's cracked. There has been some brazing inside the head, not sure if it's to repair cracks or to hold the valve seats in. Oh, and the silicone fairy has been everywhere!

Mrs Benchdonkee, Random, me and Daz met up with well over 150 other bikes in sunny Sheffield for a rainy ride to Hassop for lunch. This was the 5th year the Sheffield ride has taken place and how it's grown, the first year there were 18 bikes, only four of us have ridden all five, me, Daz, Rich and Stewart. I only took a couple of snaps, while others had power naps!
