Hi Ragman,
Langcourts do a great job with the cylinders - I've had all of mine done there.
The plating is actually Nikasil. Tell them you need a .0002 clearance between piston and cylinder.
As for the crank rebuild. If you are anywhere near leicester, my engineer/mechanic could do this for you. He has done everyone of my crank rebuilds and knows what he's doing.
I have the inner bearing race for the centre, but not the outer shell. If you are struggling, then someone could make this for you.
Unless Richard has the centre seal, they appear to be unobtainable now. I used to get mine from CPC, but the last time I enquired, they had sold them all.
If you would like to contact me on: I still have some nos engine parts left and various used parts available.
And of course, I can put you right with information to get you in the right direction.

          Many UK members have used Langcourt for cylinder repair/rechroming and I've never heard of any complaints. I believe they may be the only UK company to offer this service (chrome) and I will be forwarding a pair of barrels in the near future.
      Nikasil plating is also available but I forget the company who do this. They do a lot of work for F1 teams and can have extended lead times.                                                               Good luck with the resto, Brian.

Sometimes, it takes a whiel for him to answer email.  If you call, you'll usually have the best luck in the mornings (USA time, +6 from your time, I believe).

Great Gamble - I had one that looked WAY worse than that, with 10 miles, but that thing purred like a kitten after cleaning fuel system - tank, shutoff, lines, carb. I couldn't believe it. Where are you located?

Thanks for the replies.

I've arranged for the cylinders to go to Langcourt to be repaired and re-plated, the broken skirt can be sorted out by them apparently too. Does anyone have any experience of them?

I also need to find someone to repair the crank - it looks OK - but the centre bearing is shot. I've seen some bearings on ebay, but can;t find the centre seal at the moment. Any ideas?

How does a person get in contact with Richard?

thanks Brian
always interesting and confusing
it would be good to be able to talk with someone who actually worked on the production line maybe all the messed up numbers was  only due to the language barrier ?
my early 67 gtr the numbers are out by about 30 I think the other 68 gtr doesn't have the original motor 
my running gto has matching frame and serial id tag

I had forgotten about that post cheers

Well a $100 admission price isn't too much to gamble. Hopefully the Coors on the seat was full & cold and came with 23 more siblings!
Good luck on getting it to run again!

Welcome to the site. If you have problems someone on here can usually give good guidance on how to troubleshoot the problem.
I wouldn't think too many of the Bridgestones will be found in that part of the world.

Just worked out a deal with the guy to buy it for $100 with a title. Hope I made a good deal.
