I've been having a lot of trouble with plug-fouling and oil in the combustion chamber on the Comet and Stumpy Lord suggested that I should send my muff, liner and piston to Simon Linford in Scotland. Simon found many problems and supplied, fitted and bored out a good second-hand liner and fitted it to my muff. He drilled small, angled holes in my RAK Omega piston to encourage oil drainage and I had it all back within the week. His prices are very reasonable, he seems to be a decent bloke and I recommend him. His number is 01828 640525.

Thanks to Clev Trev for his advice and input again. Also to Stumpy - helpful and knowledgeable as ever!

Any job I have sent for Simon to do for me has come back or been done in a short time. He is set up to do things like bottom links.
The Vincent courier service works well to Meigle where he lives. It helps if you live in northern climes. I went to a Perth lunch and it was done by following Wednesday.
