Hi I am having problems freeing up my new P7 it always stops and seizes at top dead centre and I have to pull it out of buggy to turn the flywheel what a drama has anyone got any suggestions on getting out of this situation?
thanks

Use a heat gun to heat the cylinder before starting to 200 degrees and a screwdriver to pry the flywheel back to BDC if it gets stuck in the pinch. Never let the motor cool down while setting at TDC. You should not have to remove the motor from the buggy to do this!

Heat gun works like magic. Helps to have a good starter box too. I have the integy twin motor and never have a problem.

Ok!! First of all, take it easy.
2- get apowerfull starter box, make sure your ignitor is well charged and the plug is good.
3- take out the glow plug and put a couple drops of after run oil in , so the piston is well lubricated.
4-Try starting the motor with a loose glow plug and when it starts, tighten it up.
5- You might want to try a different (dry) plug in case this one is too wet with gas.
6- Don't flood the motor: Start it with factory settings and after it's started, ritchen it up for breaking in.

I hope this helps!!!


PS: Yep , the heat gun and BDP cool down are a big help too!!!
