Broker/Owners Comments

The issue with engine occurred when the new Bowman heat exchangers were installed and the exhaust muffler on the port engine was mounted higher than the lowest cylinder, allowing it to siphon back and sit in the cylinder and over time caused the piston to seize up inside the cylinder. I am told that these are robust engines and a very big thump might unlock it but I am worried about the piston rings breaking. I stripped down the head to investigate and feel it would be better to refurbish the engine for which I was given an estimate of £5k
