Hi Steven, you can not get replacement big end, or main bearing shells.
I last saw some around 45 years ago!
You have to go down the route of having them re metaled & bored to fit the crank.
(tip, have the Dural con rods normalised, they become brittle with use, hence the number of blocks with repairs).
I may have the required rings, what size? & also a new head gasket, but I need to check.

Hi Graham thanks for the reply, I will check ring size tomorrow but if you have a gasget and correct rings that will be brilliant.
Many thanks Steve
