emo EF-RL Piston???

Hi
I have recently bought Gruss' old L200S Zato with the EF-RL engine.
The engine was smoking when I bought the car so I knew that I had to sort something out, suspected stem seals or piston rings.
After a few weeks of running I noticed that the traffic behind me was getting further away, so I decided that enough was enough and the engine had to be removed to find out what the problem was. Before removal, compression test was done, CYL 1-10 BAR, CYL 2-10 BAR, CYL 3-4.5 BAR, not quite right!
Engine removed, head off, removed piston no 3. Big chunk out of the side being held in place by the piston rings!
Luckily the bore is really clean and the big ends are absolutely fine so it appears no further damage has occurred, lucky!
Question is, does anybody by any chance have a spare piston/rod for an EF-RL?
Thanks
Ashley

Hi Gruss
Yes I do still have the spare engine which may be going in sooner than expected!
Although I would still like to find another piston to get this engine back to a complete state. It was running really well, apart from the cloud behind me so it would be a shame for it to go to waste.

Superspat, how much would you like for this engine? And where are you?

Thanks
Ashley

That engine is very tempting, it's just miles away and I haven't got the spare cash at the mo.
Are the ancillaries included with it?
