Yeah, there always have been in the past, just don't seem to be any now. Typical :)
Why don't you get a headset for yours and do the gasket? Its less work than swapping the whole engine :)

Im trying to do the most cost effective thing, you see i dont wanna do the gasket etc only to find its not gonna work cause of the state of the pistons :(
Ahh, sorry mate not been keeping up. Those bores don't look ideal. I've got a block and pistons, but no conrods, if that's any use to you? Though it'd probably cost more to build it up than a complete one.
