    Hi all

    Well I finally got a chance to strip the MPR down and have a look at the hammer / guide and as previously thought IT WAS IN A RIGHT MESS . :eek: No wonder I was getting some odd fliers !!!
    It was almost asif the oil-lube was burnt on ?

    For your delight here is a pic of the guide before polishing , I rest my case . lol

    I always use some WD40 type spray on a cloth to ensure all the dried on crap is removed
