i need piston and rind=gs for my starflite
m-48 i think........
i got the piston unstuck....yAY!!!!
THANKS FOR THE ADVICE ...PB BLASTER WORKS AWESOME
That's what I'll try then.
I've only used regular oil and a piece of wood and a mallet. It worked on my old puch, but these minarelli's are more stubborn.
Check your cylinder walls for any scarring. You may need to replace it too, if it's bad. Do you have access to a small honer?
If the cylinder's good, you'll still want to hone it first.
I use a honer that was made for brake cylinders. It works great.
Also; what about the piston? It might be good enough to still use if it's not cracked anywhere, like around where the rings fit in it.
Glad to hear you got it unstuck, that sure is a nice bike. I'd try to re-use the piston, Batavus engine parts are really hard to find. I think they have them on themopedjunkyard.com, but you have to buy a bunch of extra parts along with the piston and it's expensive.
I've heard that Hero-Majestic rings fit that engine, but I've never had to try it myself. Might call Handy Bikes in Columbus and ask about it.
i cant wait to get her up and running
she is very pretty
thank you for the help.
Glad to hear it worked. I'm looking forward to hearing that it's running.
