Shovel strip down

Started the stripping the motor down last night 

Found a bit of debris in the bottom, didn't look promising 

Turns out three of the inner valve springs had snapped! 

Couple bits of the spring got into the oil feed and ended up in the cylinder and took a chunk out of the piston

Scored the barrel pretty good 

Next job is to inspect the oil pump then split the cases and hope there's no more damage in that.

To be continued.....
