The P6 was a good motor in its day.(1936-1970s)....the bigger motor ,the R6 was a bit of a disaster ,and the S6 made in WW2 for boats was OK for the services who could maintain them properly.

With the head off I put the big shifter on the crank nut and it moved .So backward and forward a few times then round and round, I put the crank handle in and it spun freely

I had a good look at the head ,then the motor and decided to have the head serviced and to pull out the motor and strip it down .


This will be continued but now I have to get back to repairing flood damage

Great news!
I wonder if it was just breathing through an open valve? I have a Stude straight 8 here that breathed through a loose cork in a spark plug hole - for about 50 years! Under cover the whole time, but the piston is corroded away right down to the rod. (and being aluminium, has eaten the bore, too. :( )
