 Back on topic …….. OP needs to go back and read post 7 in this thread.  Then when you've read what Richard was telling you and align it alongside what you last said, along with the admission that the engine and gearbox spent 2 months laying in brackish water. Then what Steamraiser2 said in post number 2 of this thread is the way forward.

I guess the piston at TDC was on the exhaust stroke and allowed the water and crud into the engine through the exhaust port, thus doing the damage on that lung.

 

That there assembly has got to come out, and pulled down in preparation for a ground up restoration. 

Anything else would be papering over the cracks, and the real damage will be done when it fires up.

 

Stop looking for short cuts, get it lifted out and loose thy spanners on it.

Ahh, a true follower of the Gods of Dursley

 

OFF-TOPIC. Our BMC in the boat had started to develop a charming 'chuff-chuff' noise with the engine running. It was quite clearly coming from the exhaust. Charming though it was, I new the sound of trouble developing when I heard it

 

Rather than the expected burnt out exhaust valve, it had blown the head gasket between 3 and 4. Presumably the 'chuff' was the sound of combustion in four escaping into 3 at the bottom of the exhaust stroke

 

I thought you might find that entertaining/amusing/whatever

During the 80s I attended every training course Dursley offered, but then I had to eventually go home to my wife (at the time) oh how I cried.
