    Crankcase oil jets - I have too many!

    Thanks Jim, the sick feeling has passed! odd how only visible on one side, I'm thinking these holes were blocked and i will probably find 2 more on the other side. What do you think? The PO (who knows how many ago!) did not do a great job in protecting the blasted cases - oil pump was, still...

    Another Rotor question

    Thanks Guys, I'm gonna go with trying the magnet (not a lot to lose) The post for fitting the magnet shows where to drill a hole to fit the magnet in, so it should be secure once its epoxy'd in place. (Must dash our live politics at the minute is better than any soap opera LOL)
