My repair manual isn't very good. It says to unbolt the cylinders from
the crankcase and work them off of the pistons. At this point it does
NOT mention opening the case to disconnect the pushrods. It then says
to reverse the proceedure for reinstallation. However, it does not say
how to slide the cylinder back over the piston (and the rings). Is it
possible. Or do I need to go the long way around and disassemble the
crankcase, put the pistons back into the cylinder (from the outside)
and then bolt the pushrods back to the crank?
I have never worked on an engine the has a crankcase that can be split
open and has cylinders that can be removed. Whats the best proceedure?
Right now I have the outside parts removed and the heads off.
My goal is to hone the cylinders and install new rings. Also needs a
Any recommendations will be appreciated. Thanks...
