Hey Adam, I am in almost the same spot as you, but my Express is a 78. I just yesterday removed the head and cylinder. I did use the rubber mallet, and was sorta surprised how hard I had to whack it. Try whacking on one side of the bike, and then the other, hitting the cylinder around the bottom. Don't forget to be ready to catch it when it breaks free. I am now trying to find a good way to clean the head because mine has all kinds of baked on dirt. I'm sure it will dissipate heat better with the dirt off! I ordered the 70 cc DR kit for mine, which comes with all the rings and gaskets, plus cylinder, clips, piston, etc. Looks like Bike Bandit has rings and gaskets for the 81 for about $41. plus shipping. Here's a LINK . Also found a cool section in the shop manual on how to check your rings with a feeler gauge. You take them off the piston and slide them into the cylinder (after you get it off), then measure the gap. Mine were way off. Here's ANOTHER LINK . My basic approach to working on my bike is, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it. But if it is broke, upgrade it!" Best of luck to you!
