Man you guys rock...sorry but by shot I mean thanks. Anyways still no luck with the attempt to pull it out. Have tired everything you guys have mentioned seems that I will have to pull out the engine, strip it out. Oh well guess was going to have to do it anyways needed to change the bearings and piston ring.
On another note. while I took out this engine I had bought the ESP 30.5cc on from DDM
with the clutch and carb. My prob is while im waiting for the gasket kit to arrive for the stock engine I thought might as well stick this 1 in so long and came up with a few problems.
1.) On the clutch housing there is a protruding notch with a hole just on top towards the plastic guard near the exhaust as seen in the picture (on the stock motor seems to be planned out)
2.) On the carb there is a metal bracket that has a gold color thingy on the bottom of it and I removed that but when installing the engine hits agianst the fule tank. Can I remove this?
3.) The throttle linkage does not sit properly and rubs against the top of the clutch housing.
I have been at it for almost 2 nights straight was hoping to get it ready before xmas and now its driving me bonkers. hey almost forget to ask if any of you has used this engine before how does it handle
