    G'day relicz, as you have said the liner pins look good with washers intact so i assume the liner band has never been removed? if so and please correct me if i am wrong, but how do you ascertain the Drp nA stamps on the liner band?

    Regards Phill.
    There are three ways I know of reading tight liner band markings (without unnecessarily disturbing them of course). A magnifying glass using a flash light at an angle, a bore scope, or a digital inspection camera. But often the easiest way is looking at the inside of the liner band you can see the marking embossed in reverse.

    Hope that answers your question.

    One more I almost forgot to mention that has works on occasion. Digital macro photos of the area using alternative lighting other than the camera flash. Take lots of pictures until one comes out clear enough to read the liner band. Enlarging the pictures afterwards often helps reveal detail.

    So I guess that makes five ways I know of, at least the ones I've discovered. I'm pretty sure other methods exist as well.

    Yup, just read the embossing in reverse, that's what I do.

    It's all good Phil, we are all here to learn from each other. There is nothing better than we enthusiasts sharing our collective knowledge. I learn daily and appreciate the opportunity.
