That bronze cap should last a life time, and it saves having to put a bearing shell in it.
looks like the bush you put in the small end has a smaller hole than the original one? Or is it just a thicker bushing.

Re: KSR1100

Were the centres in both ends of the crankshaft there for checking the shaft or were they for centring that end of the crank with the centre on the inner face of the crank web for main bearing grinding & big end pin hole location,

Re: HSD12704.L

What cunning plan re the prop?

It could be sent to me and I can cast a new one.

I can use the old one as a pattern to make a new one even if one blade is missing.

Re: 102 help

I would say have a look at the water jacket, I had the same problem and found the brass fitting was half blocked.

Keep at it I'm interested in the outcome.
