Thank you Sno Jet! BS 50 piston now out of the cylinder!!
« on: September 27, 2011, 01:28:48 PM »
Who knew a seized piston could cause so much grief? It was Sno Jet's recommendation of the gas gun that finally yielded the result. Can't say that I wasn't a bit apprehensive at first but nothing else was working so the big guns had to come out. AND the cylinder survived! Can't say better than that! Looks like a four corner seizure that I understand is supposed to be caused when the piston expands faster than the cylinder and the clearance between the piston and cylinder is reduced or from too quick a warm-up, too lean carb jetting (main jet), or too hot of a spark plug range. It maybe small beer to many but to a newbie it's first mission accomplished - thanks to Sno jet and this website. So thanks very much y'all. Bring on the next problem ...
