Trojan engine work

The Trojan engine proved to be somewhat more reluctant to come apart than I had hoped. A lot of pulling, heating, lubricating and levering finally separated the one stuck piston from the bore but there were some casualties, the 2 pistons in cylinder #2 both got damaged but they were in poor condition anyway and the bores at this end of the engine don't look too good either. I also found the main bearings had been shimmed and the foot to crankcase gasket was missing so there is a lot to resolve before I can make more progress.
