I think I am gonna leave the piston and cylinder alone, maybe just re-ring it. I am also going to have Dave do the head. I'll look and see if I can find a fresh spot on the cam shaft for the seals to ride, I hadn't thought about just moving them to a different spot. That's a good idea.

I'll drop you a line on the clutch stuff!
