Mark Shepherd.   ---   the minute I saw your name , I knew you would pick u=
p on that one.--- Forrest fire watertanker etc.   The reason I asked about =
where the pistons are ----was because of BDC      The rust was the smaller =
part of the problem , in the "Baddies" I did.      The aluminium oxidation =
and resulting expansion was the real PITA. I have not used the following on=
 a rabbit. But the fact is that strong caustic like potassium hydroxide pro=
tects steel from rusting , and makes short shift of aluminum pistons. I fil=
led the cylinder with maximum concentration then rebored..         Hagar.
