Thanks everyone. The crank and everything else are within tolerance. The way the engine pulled apart (with great difficultly), I don't think it's been apart for some time - if ever!
Great news Amboman about the pistons, I think this is the route I'll take.

Anyone know which piston choice would suit new Nikersil bores best A, B, or C. I'm guessing A, but I'd like a second opinion before I splash out.
Thanks,
Paul.

The letter stamps on the pistons and bores are to match them in terms of tolerance so A pistons match A bores, etc. as long as they match there is no advantage as to which letter you have.

3 months later and I've got everything for the rebuild.
I've been trying to find the torque settings for the early 700's. I can find the 750 ones, are they the same? Also, when putting the sludge trap plug back, it just keeps screwing in, I thread-locked it flush and peened it there. I hope this is the correct way.
I will include photos in my next post.
All responses appreciated, Thanks,
Paul.

I would think that using the 750 torque settings you can't go far wrong.However, there will possibly be some variations and amendments,head nuts for instance.I would wait for Charlie (Amboman) to pick up on this thread and see what he says.

Head nut torque is the same as the 750s and 850s - 29-32 ft. lbs.
