HEY! Let’s talk about something besides Coronavirus. My new cylinder hone came from Amazon, so I honed the new cast iron cylinder out proper. Cleaned up beautiful.
I also got the stuck piston free from the old cylinder after a few weeks soaking. The aluminum cylinder is shot tho. Plating came off where the rings seized. Glad I found this cast iron one. I removed the rings after soaking with PB blaster, and thoroughly cleaned the piston.
I think I’m gonna run it for now, rather than spending ~$100 on a new one. It has some light scratching on the skirt, but I’ll sand that out. It also has some pitting around the outside edge of the crown. I don’t know what from, but it doesn’t look like anything was hitting it & both rings were intact. I think I’ll sand that a bit too, put new rings in and run it. F it, it’s just mopeds.
