The fork is not the problem,it's the ring guide that the fork go's into thats the problem-->not because it's hard to make,but because i have to get the flywheel off,and it's been on there for over 70 years.

The bigger problem is the water getting from the water jacket into the cylinder. Now i know we will be using water in our fuel,but not this much lol. Im hoping that it's the oil feed tube to the cylinder that is rotten,and not the cylinder it self.

They looked like part of one casting to me.  Anyway, I hope you don't have too much difficulty with the repairs.

I suppose you could pull the piston again and fill that water jacket successively to higher and higher levels to find the leaks wherever they might be.  I am sure that you will get it sorted out one way or another.
