If it is ABC look to see if the chrome has worn off. If it is a ringed engine look for lines or scratches on the liner. All begins can be repaired, but there are limits as to how worthwhile that is. Check for leaks around the carb and backplate.Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk

I just couldn't get the sleeve out to inspect the piston. The cable tie trick worked eventually but only to raise the sleeve above block. I sprayed oil and warmed it in the oven but only BF&I did the trick. Anyway although it's destroyed now there is signs of deterioration on the sleeve and piston but not through the chrome yet. I'm fairly confident the engine was toast anyway. New piston and sleeve is almost £70 so I think a replacement new engine is on the cards now.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
