Hi John,
Could you get all the parts needed for a rebuild? I thought certain parts like the Rotor Bearings are out of stock?

Regards, Jannes

The guy that did the rebuild(over two years ago now)managed to find some from somewhere wink,along with Rotor Tips,Apex Seals,(and just about everything else that needed re-newing for a compleat engine rebuild cool,)but like I said,that was over two years ago,and bearings and things were still available.J.B.

The engine removal is taking a while ('cos I am suffering with p**y Sciatica evil)and I can only spend between 1&2hrs a day on it,but I will plod on,J.B.
