Thanks I’ll put my glasses on when I check this time! One of the team has ‘invested’ in a boroscope that works off a Android smart phone, we’ll check in the bores for domed pistons, just to confirm.

So it's a late factory reconditioned block with a late 2500 head.
Everything stacks up. I think you can dismiss any thoughts of it being a 2000!

johnnydog - Yes it’s a bonus for us. We are still going to use the boroscope to check how good the bores are and whether the head needs a decoke.
