Piston rings

Hi,

Still a Land Rover novice, so don't know that much about Land Rovers, but
was told by a mechainc today that, because of the smoke coming from my
Land Rover, he thinks I have a piston ring gone, can some one tell me the
symptons please.

Vehicle, 1960 diesel series 2.

And if any one lives near Newcastle/Northumberland, It would be useful if
some one was able to take a look at the Land Rover, and say weather they
think it is the piston rings, and just to give us a general idea of any
thing that might be wrong with the engine. Of course, this would be
repayed by the odd beer or two.


Thanks, Phil

Phil,
Ask for a proper compression and leakdown test.
