Well from the pictures I would be putting that piston and associated head in the scrap bin.


Don't forget when you get it sorted and put the heads back on to check the piston to head clearance. All of the indian made head gaskets I have seen to date are to thick and wont allow the clearance to be set correctly. It will run but wont be as clean as it can be. Hence we don't buy the Indian gaskets, we make our own to the OEM thickness.


We have used heads as well hear

yeah, saw that - image looks like it has valves but as you say it's silly money!

The other head is better but not perfect and seems to have been welded. 

Oh dear!


Richard - who's done inserts for you - I am inclined to agree with BWM that it's a bit far gone but I'd like a machine shop to look at it first!
