Daimler Sleeve Valve (No 3) Photos

Early this month I removed the rear cylinde block to assess the rear pistons and sleeves.
This engine doesn't seem to be terribly badly worn. It is interesting that most of the sleeve/bore wear takes place on the fore and aft of the cylinder, not the thrust side as a conventional engine? I haven't thought this through yet.
