Removing PISTON and Connecting Rods

Sometimes it is difficult to get the connection rod to pop off the crank pin.

A simple tool for this is a carriage bolt.



Do not force the connecting rod.

Be sure you already removed the cylinder liner.

If there is an access hole on the back of the crankcase, you may have to pull the wrist pin out first.
