as long as you check your oil it should be okay for a while providing you do'nt thrash it about,a set of new rings 20/25 quid & a full engine gasket set 6 quid,not a expensive job at all really,it might possible to do at the tech workshop so at the same time you can learn how to do it.sort out at the next meeting, :) :) :)
