I suspect the crank has spun a bearing, is the camshaft Ok.
The state of the head was always the worry but, at least visually, it seems to be okay. That's the main reason it's gone for testing. Should know more middle of next week.

The crank is rock solid and it wouldn't surprise me if you're correct about the spun bearing. The block is no more than scrap.

The clutch plate is contaminated with oil and not worth keeping. Even though the 'new' engine has a relatively new clutch in it, for the sake of £100 or so, I'm tempted to buy a brand new clutch to store away just in case.

Like buses both the head and the hubs come back at the same time. The head is in excellent condition and has been skimmed, the hubs have been vapour blasted, galvanised and primed with new bearings and ball joints fitted. I do need new seals for the cylinders as they are brittle and dry.
