    Have you read this thread?


























  • Quote: so if the backplate wont come off ,smoothly even though the piston is all the way down then ,just turn the flywheel down more?

    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
  • my chip was like half the size of that haha

    Hmmm... you don't READ any better than you WRITE.

    (Sorry, I just couldn't resist!)

    Thats great I was thinking the same thing.
  • 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

    It got caught on the rim of the toilet when he was using it as a plunger!!SEE PICTURE!!! Or MAAAAAAYBE he did not have the piston TDC when he took the backplate off...hmmm gotta be the toilet.1900 plus posts??? I'm all for sharing info and learning from this website but god man try and follow along!!
  • 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.

    OMG I laughed so hard. I really hope you were being sarcastic.

    Quote: if you put the piston all the down there, shouldnt be a problem getting off. the backplate, without damageing anything right?

    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 !!!
