I have purchased some spare vhpd parts from Pierre on here (thank you). The liners are much better than mine so I plan to fit them and find the most balanced set of con rods and pistons. I only reassembled the engine finger tight so it will be in bits in a flash. I’ll keep you posted on my slow progress.

Presumably if you have an MS or MS2 head and the serial matches the block, it's a fair bet it's a VHPD bottom end? :?

That's the one! Thanks, Daniel. And thanks James for your pics. I'll take a proper look at mine now. The markings in Keith's first close up pic are the same style/font etc as my spare so there's hope.
