I'm starting to work on a 1980 Garelli Rally Sport I recenlty acquired. The engine is seized in a most horrible manner.
The piston rings have broken inside the cylinder and wrapped around the piston. What I mean is this: The rings are jammed BETWEEN the piston and cylinder and jamming out (like little horns) along the sides.
Is there ANY way to rescue either the cylinder or the piston (or both)? I do have a spare Garelli engine, but that one has no piston. So I also have no idea what size piston would fit.
But I'd like to rescue this other engine first, if at all possible. How do I go about doin this? Any ideas for this tought job?
