When I pulled the engine apart I found why it would not rotate fully, the big end roller bearing had broken up. This was not going to be an easy fix. Unsure of where to take the engine I phoned Cox & Turner and after a good chat with Ian Cox he confirmed they could do the work. So the engine was taken to them for a new big end bearing to be made, new crank seals fitted and magneto rebuilt by someone they knew. They were unable to get any seals that would fit the crank and crankcase so it was agreed the case would be machined to enable new seals to be fitted. A new roller bearing had to be made to order for the big end. Yes all this did cost a fair bit.
