    dodgy reconditioner

    due to poor running and no compression on 1 and 4 on a 1.7 dti that was rebuilt last year at a local reconditioners i decided to remove the head for inspection and i could not believe what i was seeing number 1 2 and 4 were standard pistons and bore measurements why number 3 was oversized by 0.50 sureley even though the warranty has recently expired i have some rights to a refund as i was under the assumption that i could claim due to the fact it was not rebuilt correctly

    If they only replaced/ground one liner, then fitting one oversized piston is fine. You don't necessarily have to oversize them all if only one liner was damaged.
