Hi have contacted Brian to no avail. We have have to consider a complete engine for donor parts. Rudy

Hi Rudy,
When stuck between a rock and a hard place this might be an option. Is UK based, but there are the occasional Aussie there along with Kiwis. You never know unless you ask.

Hi all the piston that is shown has a flat top , I believe that the piston from the engine should have a domed top as it is a 1912 model. ( we are still trying to remove what's left of the piston) . My question is will it make a difference to use a flat topped piston. Regards Rudy

Hi the piston from Peter is from a Lister L and wont work as it is too big. Back to square one. Thanks Rudy
