Hello - interesting enough pic - what was the cause? overspeed? or lack of oil to that part of the piston - there seems to be some heavy oil residue/ combustion carbon on the rest of the piston but non just above that part...

No idea what caused it, cylinder is ok. getting piston welded up and re machined; it was the only option as parts are non existant!! Its old 55+ years but hopefully be up and running again soon!!! cheers
