Hey guys! Me and my dad pulled the head off the Ducati. The cylinder was full of water, but, the bottom end was in real nice shape. Why is hasn't ran in so long.....The timing was WAY off. But, it would have been a simple fix! Good thing me and my dad have it now, and will hopefully bring it back to life! Ian.

I think it is great you and your dad are working on it together.  Some really great memories to have.  Hopefully you may get away with just a top end rebuild.  Any idea on parts availability?

At $250.00 for a piston I'm thinking being real careful with the one you have is in order.

That could get expensive in a hurry. How did the engine get full of water like that? It's a shame it was allowed to get in that condition.

 Some idot (not my uncle) pulled the plug and left in a bad shed so water can get in.  :mad2:   :deadhorse:   :wallbanging:   :shoot2:  :(  :bs:
