I've been good man. I've been playing around with other hobbies, and taking a break from the bajas. I recently got into Counter Steer drifting up at my local hobby shop, and have been enjoying getting to run with a large group of guys. I've also gotten back into full size cars, I picked up a 10TH Anniversary Editon 1988 Mazda RX7 that I'm going to be LS swapping in the near future. How's things been there?
I have not been up to the BX in a while. i never go there anymore for anything i don't need to because tolls are so damn expensive. Good thing floyd bennet is close by me. After i finish my shorty build baja i'll be going over to the field to see what all the talk is about. Maybe i'll see you there my name is AL.
It's not too difficult to do, the hardest part is making sure the ring is seated rite before you put it into the cylinder. If you have any questions feel to send me a PM, I get emails to my phone and I can answer faster that way.
Just put a little 2 stroke oil in a cap and make sure the piston and cylinder walls are lubed up. Also get the piston started into the cylinder and then make sure the crank is at the bottom of its stroke, doing it like this keeps the walls from getting prematurely scored. No problem though man I like helping, When I build a reed engine for my buddy I'll make a thread and video on it from the uncut/unported cylinder to break in a hard running.
The only thing I can think of trying is drilling it out and sticking an Allen key in and backing it out. Have you gotten a hold of Sean, worst case you might have to send it back and he has to do some mill work to it.
