Some feedback for you Ray.
I finished breaking in my MG66 last night (one of em anyway so I can race this weekend) All is good and break in was very easy.
Car runs smoothly, idles great and has plenty of stick.

Thanks again for outstanding service.

Burt,
Thanks! Depending on the level of wear inspected your piston to sleeve fit when recieved is the amount I resize the sleeve to reastablish a good seal again. The (0.0004") 4 tenths of one thousandth of an inch indicates refernced resizing done that set. This is my procedure every set I handle, and assists me with accurate results. I also note inspected surface finish conditions, and when honing performed if found nessissary.If there are any questions, I can just pull a customers invoice for review. Hope this helps.

Hi Ray, i think Australia post must be on strike or something and unfortunately my set is yet to arrive. Checked with the mailman again this morning (Saturday) and nothing as yet, so hopefully it will be sometime after Tuesday.

Wednesday brang no joy either

Keen to hear if it was possible to be redone as i know it was fairly worn out, and the anticipation of if it turned out good or not is killing me lol.

Hey Ray,

I'm in Australia as well, there must be some hold up as my parcel has not arrived either. Was sent on the 4th by one of your earlier posts. Just to add to that I have been waiting for a parcel from A-Main as well and it is way late as well. Must be a delay somewhere.

Will it looks like there is a postal issue somewhere. My A-Main order arrived today and it was ordered 5 days after my repinch order was shipped back. Does anyone in the US now if there is a way a international priority parcel can be traced. It has been 15 days so far on the return leg and my last order was there and back in 18 days.

Just got an e-mail back from Australia post saying that there is up to a 3 week back lodge of mail coming out of some areas of the USA. So i'll just have to wait a while longer.
