Ran the M3T on the weekend at the South Australian State Titles and the things a MONSTER up top
It was a bit doughy off the bottom, but I had car issues and it could have been gearing etc
Only problem is, I've gone to pull it down to put a rod in it and I can't get the cylinder out
Has anyone else experienced this, and if so how did you remove it?

Take the carb off. Heat the engine in the oven at 250 for 10 minutes. It will come out then.

250 Celcius?
We tried the oven trick, although I don't know if we heated it to 250C

A ty-wrap, a piece of wood/plastic (like an icecream stick) or a corner tip of a towel in the exhaust port and turn the flywheel.

Tried that trick with a cable tie, but the cylinder wouldn't budge and felt like it was going to cut the tie

Make it cut the cable tie once it budges it will slide out but if it is that tight how hot did you get it at the titles??

had the same with a picco, just use a wider tie wrap (covered the entire surface of the piston
and it popped ok! checked the piston and it was perfect

I use the heat gun method to get the engine warm and the sleeve use a stick of some sorts and push the sleeve up. Works easily and makes the process safe for the engine.

Default Reds 12 on Fire

"KicKass Racing" Modified Reds M3T Wins on Debut @ Moorebank International Raceway

The Engine ran like clockwork all day taking out a comfortable win with a big turnout.
I ran the Nova pipe 2660 with the short manifold,this gives great top end and to good bottom making good power through to the top
Who here runs the reds pipe set and does anybody know how it compares to this nova pipe. (no speculators please).

GRINDER is dead right, I test this last weekend with that same combo.

But if you like horsepower and great craftsmanship ,you must talk to GRINDER. Great guy and great support...
