i was going to try the wd40 just not on the red silicone is all , the crank shaft might be ok , dont want to kill it ,just incase it is fine ,

do you mean to put wd40 down the side of the p/s to try and free it up a bit ? cos that should be ok anyway cos its not near the red stuff , i am gonna try that , but my wd40 is in my car and thats not here at them minute , gonna have to wait till later , unless i find my old tin ,

Yep take the backing plate off and the heatsink as you have done and hold the engine upside down and spray through the backing plate around the sleeve.

Hope it frees up.

Remove the clutch,and all other removable parts.(there is a o-ring under the carb holder!) Heat crankcase with hair dryer to around 100C it may help. You needs brand new bearings and remove all rust. Use water and washing-up liquid to wash the crankcase after you remove the bearings. I think your engine still fine after some proper process.

Yeah, I don't think he can do any worst of that $300 engine............might as well open everything up, ask a lot of questions, and see what else need to be replaced in order to bring this baby alive.....you will never know, may be for about $100 of parts, the engine will be like 90% new....never know....but shoudl be a lot of work....

Again, WD40 does help to fight against rust....I would even spray a 1/2 bowl of it and let the whole block take a bath for a day or 2........it can only help more then harm.....

Dude that really sucks i'm not sure how you'd get that bit of cable tie out maybee use another cable tie lol to pry the sleeve out i normally use a small flam headed screwdriver and sort of use a leverage effect...dont try to twist the screwdriver you'lll wreck everything... in all honesty i wouldnt have high hopes for this motor but it can be an awesome learning curve for you and it is possible to get it running just will take a lot of work i really do hope it all works out for you i truely do feel sorry for you....

Unrelated question but what car do you have it in?

this is definetley a learning curve for me lol, thanks to all those that are helping me out , and not taking the piss, like: buy a new engine ?? this was/is a brandnew engine, so glad everyone on forums are not as childish , otherwise there would be no point to forums !!

but i have done it now , lol , ripped out the p/s , looks like i'll be needing a new p/s for sure anyway , lol, but its still stuck .

oh btw HAV-LOVA it was in a mtx3, i got another mtx3 with idm , and i love it , shame about this jp, but i will see how it moves oneday ,

ROOKIE i think i will soak them all in a bowl of wd40 when i have everything out





i'm not having any luck with this jp , to tell the truth it's put me of them a bit , cos all my other engines are fine and all the ones i have sold on aswell ,
