Turns out a brand new head is the same cost as getting an old one refinished... if anyone wants the old on cheap...$15 plus shipping...let me know

New hat for the beast. [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG]

So im at a roadblock,... 1. Does anyone know how to get the impeller off as well as the bolts on the clutch without an impact air tool?
2. Does anyone have a case splitter they can let me rent for a few days?

Oooh and Dogger,..when you received your new cylinder you remember there was a sort of yellow coating on the inside. Did you do anything to remove that before running the motor? Or just assemble it as is?

I got my impeller off by inserting a cotton Shop rag in the exhaust port when the piston was down to lock the motor. I was relatively gentle but firm with a 1/4" ratchet.

The yellow coating is typically a wax or cosmolene (spelling), used to prevent rust. I would remove with mineral spirits or IPA or parts washer solvent. Then wash Very Thoroughly. When you think it is clean enough, test with a clean white paper towel wetted with red tranny fluid. If there is any sign of gray or dark color on the rag, it's not clean enough. On my V8 truck Motors I always clean with Hot Soapy water too. But that's Cast Iron.
Others??

Cool...though I already have the piston off...its just the rod sticking out. I tried putting the chain back on the counter and holding it with vice grips..but that didnt work.


Will clean up that cylinder

Good Point, you even showed a picture. Sometimes I can be a little slow

Got a strap wrench? around the Clutch Basket.

I've never seen the slanted spark plug hole on a two stroke head. Thats probably pretty convenient for changing out plugs. Haven't seen a head with two coolant inlets either; is that a 500 thing?
