Give it a full strip down and clean now, what was the reason for it being apart?

A rear tyre wouldn't hurt either lol

Just a little fresh'n up... It's been a good 10 years on the stock piston,funny part was it's not worn not more than a half a thou. But i found a few other 'issues'. That tire is the next thing,although it still works really well,mainly because it's about 12" wide.:ride:

The seats look really good,although the intake valves are dished bad,the inner springs are sacked out.Also the ex valves had been getting a little 'personal' with the piston. The new (oem) piston will have the ex pockets relieved 50 thou.

I run a stage two cam and REALLY don't want to give that up:banana:
