    Is this asking for trouble?

    Ok, so I figured out how to add pics..


    I just bought this block and have a few queries if someone can help me I'm told it is an 2004 done about 40 hours... firstly there is a small scratch on the bore of one cylinder... does it look too deep? if I get it honed do I just go with standard size rings?

    2ndly there is a small chunk missing near the starter bendix?? roughly in that area... is this going to cause me grief?

    Should I try to clean it up or just leave it???

    U will not be able to "hone" out a scratch in the cyls. Bore it 20 over, and get some new pistons to start fresh IMO.

    the chunk missing is usually from a SC failure. As long as the chain guides are still ususeable, and not damaged, u could probably still use it

    In regard to the missing chunk - Do I clean it up? And file it back? Or just leave it?

    Hi mate,
    The pictures aren't the best. Can't really see how bad the scratch is. If you can catch your finger nail on it, you most likely need a bore. The issue is if you bore it you will need new pistons, rings and bearings.
    The missing chunk is ok, the housing is not damaged. Just clean it up.
    It may be worth putting in the oiler mod and changing the flywheel bolts since you have it apart.

    I would recommend it, it gives better oiling to the s/c which helps the bearings, gear, slip..........There are no draw backs to doing this mod and its cheap.
