Side by side they looked and felt identical. I'm no expert on silicon hoses of course but I doubt there is any real difference.

Bore is also shot, unfortunately, so looking at +£2.2k in new parts, etc............time to strip down the original engine and check condition of rear cylinder, methinks.

Aye, will strip down and inspect but assuming that it 'survived' the broken plug episode, plan is to put new valves, springs, etc into the 65K miles rear cylinder and stick it on the 20k miles motor - SDR exhaust valves £45 each, inlet valves £145 each apparently....................................
