Anyone have a spare 1700 (87mm) 8 valve piston, sitting there doing nothing - that would like a new home?

Could do with one, please, for my engine build.

Thanks.

Need to get the engine fully connected before I give it a go and see if it fires up.

Thanks all... ...

I think you can also tilt the engine quite a lot as well - but I think I may have removed the driveshafts to do this.

Yep, that was my thinking, after trying most things. I didn't block the return, as previously I had removed the FPR and tested the system without (up to the FPR). It was the only thing that made the ...
