So I have stripped my engine all the way down and noticed some imperfections. I don't think I am the first one to have disassembled it. The following pictures highlight issues of concern to me, I am wondering if it is worth being rid of the case and sourcing a newer one. Thanks!

I am currently on the hunt for a new con rod, cranks, flywheel and bearings too so I will post that in the buy/sell section

'Imperfections' is the telling phrase here I reckon.
maybe you're expecting too much from a nigh on 40 year old bike?.
I doubt you'd find a pristine second hand engine case anywhere.
I'd live with that.

You in Borough?

I've seen worse and lived to ride it. I agree with Reg in Bristol -- live with it.
