Thanks everyone, The reason I reckon I have worn piston rings is a severe lack of power, dificult cold starting, lots of smoke under hard acceleration & big oil consumption. You are right enough though that there could be problems at the valve seals, either or aswell. This small six is a 12valve, so I think I may just go see if I can get a reconditioned multivalve engine and exchange the whole lot.

Thanks again for the help.
