what you see on the piston is probably just left over scum... the piston is aluminum, and aluminum can not physically rust. but it can be tarnished and that is probably tarnished from the epoxy dried up on it (or if you prefer to call it silicone).

......Looks like something off the TITANIC !


soak it in WD40, dismantle it, replace the bearings & gudgeon pin, it should be ok...

tell you what, I'd be getting rid of that fuel you're using....

I think the story is half told. No way can an engine rust in the manner shown, unless you soaked it in the Dead Sea! I used O'D as well, and sometimes I didnt even apply any after run oil but the engine is fine even after weeks. Only tiny spots of rust on the counter weight which is easily removed by using some AutoSol.

i have heard wd40 is no good when using engines with the red putty stuff in the crankcase , it eats it away , need to use something else that's easy o the red stuff.

yep opened up the backplate and it was definetley brandnew .

yeah i scraped that stuff of the conrod with my finger nail .

cant get the piston sleeve /liner out , its stuck sloid , even after heating it up with hairdryer ?

If you opened that engine on purchase and it was brand new,there IS definately more to this story than we are being told! I don't need to call you a liar and don't care if you are or not,but that DID NOT HAPPEN IN 3 WEEKS TO AN ENGINE WITH AFTER RUN! To repair boil engine in ethylene glycol antifreeze to remove oxidation, while engine is hot use nylon toothbrush on top of piston to start sleeve moving and remove. Polish piston with light metal polish and check for pitting where it was oxidized,if pitted replace sleeve and piston,if not remove wrist pin and replace.Warm crankcase and remove crank and bearings,REPLACE bearings,polish crank to remove all oxidation.Reassemble engine using Klotz synthetic or Marvel mystery oil,if not replacing sleeve polish all debris from external surfaces,do not polish internally.
Also check carb for internal corrosion clean and repair as necc.The one thing I find most curious is the ring of oxidation around the exhaust sealing flange.
All that being said it would probably be cheaper to buy a new engine,unless you are ver competent at engine rebuilding.

well as far as i can remember i am not forgetting anything out,
IT DID HAPPEN TO ENGINE IN 3 WEEKS WITH AFTER RUN ,
i dont know why this has happened maybe i didnt get the after run in there properly hence the fuel still sitting in crank case, wish i did know.

funny enough i was trying to move piston sleeve with a toothbrush from the bottom through the backplate opening , what do you mean ( on top of piston ??)

Take a peice of plastic, and put it in the exhaust port, and have the piston push up on the sleeve. Use plastic, so you do not mark the piston or sleeve. You'll only be able to move the sleeve a little, but it should be enough to get something under the lip of the sleeve. Pull the plastic out, and you should be able to remove the sleeve at that point.


Let us know how its going.


Where do you live (near ocean?) and is it possible that water got into the area you stored the engine?

I'm in Florida, and yes, some buildings roof's leak (yours would too after 4 hurricanes)

Hope that helps?

I'm pretty sure this is fuel problem (maybe it's too old, or you didn't soak it well before you put in the fuel bottle) And I also think this can be happen in only 2 days time (my friend has experienced this)

When you broken in an engine, the fuel mixture is set to very rich. So if you left them even with enough after run oil, the fuel left in the engine still can cause this when the nitro and oil dry.

i tryed to a presise as i could, and you call me a liar, i'm offended by that ,

you didnt really contribute much to the thread in the way of help either , only to tell me you have never seen an engine that bad , and take the P about the pacific !!

i'm pissed off enough about this engine already , dont need to be told i am lying, when i need some help.

i have been told all i need is new bearings and a good clean with a dremel , not dead yet !!

Forgot to finish page 2............I really would like to know what kind of OD fuel that you were using to get these effect.....
