Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Well I decided to remove the engine and see whats needed, cyclinder head off and the tops of the pistons oily. Theres no lip at all at the top of the bores so mabe just a hone and new piston rings. I will stip the engine block one evening in the week.

The bits are comming to gether, Got the the block and crank back, I am building it with forged parts and hope to run at about 300 bhp. Going to try for this summer but it very exspensive aquireing the parts, Im not charncing it this time it will go on the roller before I put it back on the road.

Well I finnished stripping down the engine, The crankshaft had a few scorein the mains so that a the engineers having a regrind, I found the problem with the excessive oil on the piston tops, Its sufferd with detination and damaged the pistons arround the top rings, it also broken the piston between the top 2 rings on 2 pistons, the block has also sent to be mesured and honed or rebored, so its a case of waiting now
