Default Picco .12 Roar Legal

Hey All,

I just got my V-One-R so I decided to bolt on the fly wheel assembly to my Picco.12. The whole fly wheel assembly went on perfectly, was really good.

My only problem is that I cant get the motor to turn over at all. I grab the engine and fly wheel and I cant make the motor turn over a single time by hand, its is very tight, it feels like its actually hitting on something making it stop.

I'm quite a strong guy as well so I am pretty sure that there is something wrong with it not letting me turn it over.

Please hit me with suggestions!!!

Tommorow I will try heating it with a hairdryer and see if that gives me any
luck.

Thanks

Jon

if it isnt a new motor, then there might be something wrong.

but if it is new, ive seen motors that had to be turned over with a lot more force, so i wouldnt worry about it too much.

1. Did it ever turn over? Perhaps it is hydrolocked and you need to remove the glow plug and empty the fuel.

2. If it has never turned over and is just tight, try loosening the glow plug a little, it will take away some of the compression and allow it to start. Once it gets going, tighten down the plug and let it run to break it in.

There is no plaug in it what so ever, its a brand new engine with no filter or plug yet, I was expecting it to be tight but this is impossible to turn over, literally.

If theres no plug in it, the engine should be able to turn over relatively freely.

You cant get it to turn at all? or just not all the way over? Try putting some light oil in it and then try to turn it over. If that doesn't work, take it apart and see what is wrong with it.

These new engines can have very tight tolerances before broken in. You might want to try heating it with a hair dryer to bring it up to temperature a little, then try to turn it over without the glowplug in it.

I think you must disassembly the fly wheel and make sure you put the alu O ring behind the flywheel...

The split cone and put the Alumunium O ring(that comes with the engine) behind The split cone ...
It's seems the flywheel hitting engine's front bearing and you must make a little clearance with Alu O ring..
I hope it solve the problem
