do you have to take the flywheel, off before you even think about taking the backplate off also?
you want the piston UP not DOWN and you will be right

I was wanting to show a client a Nova FMS internals, had removed the 4 backplate screws, the phone rang, when I got off he had removed the backplate, and there was a nice sized chunk gone out of teh piston.
However whem the nice guys at Novarossi USA heard what happened, they said send it in, and they replaced it no charge, good people there

I was fortunate enough to watch another noob do that when I first started. Made an impression I did not forget.

He meant his motor was at BDC in the original post not TDC. Just wanted to clear that up for the other noobs out there reading this.

if you seal it from the outside, of the backplate does that work good?
Just in case you don't know
TDC = top dead center
BDC = bottom dead center

The flywheel has nothing to do with this so leave that alone. Just make sure the piston is at TDC before you go and pull the back plate off your engine and you'll be fine. If I was you I think I would get someone who knows what the internals of the engine are help you out before there is more problems then just a broken piston skirt.

Also don't all engines have a o ring to seal the back plate anyway? I know the ones I've had do. So why mess with it.

Right on the money 8sec !!!

You shouldn't have to seal anything on a nitro engine if its a quality engine !!!
