Hi have finally removed the piston after many hours ,there was obviously water in the bore at some time. The piston rings are as tight as , and look fixed .What is the best way of trying to save the rings. I have heard using a gentle flame will sometimes work .And it is currently in soak. Regards Rudy

Hi Rudy, nothing worse than stuck rings. Try a laxette that might help. Sorry had to say that.
What ever you have it soaking in it will need to be able to dissolve the carbon and oil around the ring groove. Not sure if electrolysis will help or molassis or even the auto fluid with accetone but it is all worth a try. If you have a safety razor try scratching above and below the ring to try to help remove the carbon. NO doubt you have experienced the result of trying to pick the ring out and away from the groove with a bad result so be carful, take the weekend off and head to Alloura for a day or two.

I wont be at Allora as we are down on the Mid North coast near Taree. WE did meet a long time back when we met Scotty at your engine club premises and you were working on an engine at the time. Dee and I were impressed with the Pimpana Clubs premises especially the size.
Enjoy your time at Allora.

Had a good time at Allora the numbers where down but the weather was probably the main reason .It is either 40 degrees or raining . I find that the part I enjoy most is catching up with like minded people and have a bit of a yarn .Helping someone start a cantankerous new engine is always a bonus. Regards Rudy

Nothing like catching up as you say. With this hobby there is always a cranky bugger to start up, even if it is another hobbyist!  ::)

P.S.: Scotty took it with good humour!

Hi Rudy ,
I have seen them with mostly Bosch magnetos - both DU1 or ZE1 , my 4.5 Vertical has a Huge National magneto on it - original

I have 2.5,3.5 and 4.5 in the vertical type C new way engine's

I have a 2.5 wreck but not much left of it, the 2.5&3.5 share a lot of parts.

It?s a pity you didn?t mention it at Allora when I seen you !!!!

Cheers Justin

I will get it resleeved and then find a magneto the gear on the crank looks a bit sad. As well. Re the govenor.  The weights are frozen the front ring moves. Does the ring near the flywheel move. A couple of pictures would be helpfull  regards Rudy
