So i have at last had chance to strip the Vege short motor i took out of the van which was noisey when cold. The AA 1911 barrels & pistons I fitted about 3k miles previous look in great shape with very little wear. The Mains,big ends & small ends are also good as was the oil pressure before removing. I have found excess end float in the Cam thrust bearing about 6tho. Also more gear lash than it should be, can hear clicking of the teeth when checking. I think the Cam is a bit 50/50 also. Thoughts?
