I feel kinda offended by that paragraph. I bought my motor from a 2nd owner. The 1st owner already had it installed on a bicycle and sold it saying "the bike works mint but i am just tired of stupid minor stuff breaking".

So the second owner was riding it and his rear wheel locked up. He looked into it further and realized the problem came from the engine being siezed. I told him i was interested in tinkering with it and he insisted on selling it to me. I took off the cylinder head and the piston moved fine. The 2nd owner insisted on selling me the engine for 20.00. He also insisted on not letting me work on it at his house. So i spent an extra hour pulling the motor off in a parking lot during in a heat wave. Plus this idiot 2nd owner couldn't understand the concept of quarantining with others nearby. So we pull the motor off and it turns out the siezure occurred because the chain popped off the sprocket and got stuck. So it eithor needs a new chain or a sprocket modifycation or the clearance between the sprocket and the engine lessened. I only bought the motor so i can rebuild the cheapest motor possible but it turns out the internals work just fine so far. Doesnt make me a weirdo.
