I have opened the engine, and unfortunately the piston to liner clearence is app 0,2 mm which according to the manual is to much.
The liners still have the Honing marks( guess that the guy I bought it from did that)
I defenitely meassures to big a ring gap at the moment , but new rings will as you say be gapped according to the spec received with the rings.
I am reluctant to replace the piston / liners as this is very expensive :-(
How important for the sealing is the Piston to liner wear? Is it not the rings which are doing the sealing ( scraping down the oil.?
Any idea on where to get the pistons if I have to buy new ones, and what types.?
