Hello all

Unfortunately one of my GT Hunters has developed a loud clatter on starting.  Dam!

I'm pretty sure it is one or maybe two gudgeon bearings Dam!

Does anyone know of a trick to find out which one or ones is the offender?, as I don't really want to strip the whole engine down.

Regards Phillip Egan.

GT powered HB Hunter, manual with overdrive.
