After deciding the TX500 engine was not going to break loose with any amount of soaking or pressure I tore into the top end. What I found was an incredible amount of rust and gunk built up on the cylinder walls and the pistons. No suprise there I suppose. A replacement cylinder is on the way, as well as new piston kits. A replacement cam chain (had to be cut) and gasket set will be much harder to source.
