The bore wasnt scored last time I had it apart. This was my block that had the electric w/p and bung. I decided to ditch that set up and fit a rebuilt pump so back to standard apart from the reverse flow mods Ive made to the cyl head and stat housing set up. Been running and used a couple of times a week since feb so no lay up as such no. Strange thing is Ive been losing water with no trace so suspected h/gasket. Last night I pulled into drive whilst turning left and when I got out I saw a few sp[ots of water on the ground which basically had come from the slot. Within a minute or so the ground was dry as so was the block hence maybe never finding the leak.
Ive got spare pump bits with me and a rebuild kit coming from Robsport (with new block bush). Stripping it tonight and if theres not enough to make me think it was a dodgy seal or fitting problem the heads coming off. I have isle of Man trip in 2 weeks so I need to get it back on the road quick for road testing before the Liverpool trip
