If it still stuck.. good, dont remove it. Mostly a "new" engine is difficult to pull out the engine. Should be easier after completely broken in.
If still hard to do, (if it was my engine) I prefer to let it there.
Just take up the sleeve and spray the piston and crankshaft with CRC(contact cleaner) or Permatex(carb/choke cleaner).
Do not use your kungfu for this part.
ok no kungfu then

Quick reactions, slow servo - Slow reactions, quick servo - who know's matter of taste I suppose

True. But let's get a JP engine first before doing all this talk.

Old sleave I'll have to buy another JP, then
The seal is for a better flow of the mixture, also i heard someone say it is because of JP is filling up a hole he made in the crankshaft to save weight.

The last i don't know for sure because i don't have an old JP crankshaft to have a better look. Don't want to kill my other ones while they still work.

D,
What do you think of the STS D3 engines?
How about the Project Zen Team Motor?

No wonder crashed_1 is always agreeing with me. Perhaps he still wants to make me believe that all this while the RING that I supposedly have is indeed the real one.

I hear that they are good. How much is the Project Zen versions going for?

I myself am running the older version of the STS RS3 engine. Had to change the conrod to a Nova one. More reliable. Overall bang for the buck I must say. But I hear the newer D3 and D5 ones still need their conrods to be checked once in a while.



I guess they are the same with Sirio engines. You need to check the conrod from time to time.
