    Did you have any play in the pistons? I have got the head off and I have moved the pistons back and forth and side to side, I have a very small amount of play, is this normal?

    I did but didn't know if it was good or bad!!!! Now she's smoke on idle , with a smell of oil, if I'm lucky it's the turbo and a little play in the bore is no problem,

    The car needs plenty of work and I'm getting a mortgage in the next few months so probably not until after that, I'm just going to concentrate on building it in the little time I've got

    Think I've killed it again , today I got the new turbo oil feed fitting and fitted it, also got a smaller alternator belt, which did the trick, stopped screeching , now for the bad news, on the way back from the garage I gave it the beans and soon after I started to hear the tappet noise again..... Shit! It's also started to smoke really hard on idle! Hopefully I'm very low on oil hence why it's smoking so hard (burnt all the oil), also hoping it's not the rings, il wait til it's cooled down and try it again , the oil could have got to hot and thinned out, fingers crossed
