Questions?? New CRT.5 RTR Trug buggin...

Hey all,

It seems like this is not the newbie area but hoping someone can help here. I was on the first tank breaking this thing in (idle), the car gave a little rev and cut out. Now the pull start is like glued in there. This is not flooding or aything like that. The pull start is totally stuck in there.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks!

Piston might be stuck at Top Dead Center. Try heating the motor up to about 175 degrees with a heat gun and see if you can crank it over.

Heat up the case of the motor with a heat gun or a really good blow dryer. Once it's heated up (about 170 degrees) You should be able to turn the flywheel and set the piston to the bottom. If it doesn't, take a flat head screw driver and gently turn the flywheel.
