Trying to get a ZA50 running (again)
New stock style 38mm cylinder
Hi comp head
Both from treats
Pressed and reamed a new bushing
Ring gap is good
15mm Bing new everything but the shell
#1 grandpa intake
I ran it the other day no problem (before the trans rebuild) and it died on me no wierd sounds or anything.
Grabbed the starter lever and it just locked the rear wheel and wouldn't cycle.
Cylinder came off no problem everything looks great still
Ok maybe the starter plate /clutches whatever went to shit. So I rebuilt the trans, everything was great except the pucks so I replaced them and shimmed the trans
Starter lever pulled in and the engine cycled without the jug on
Put the cylinder on not it feels like it's getting hung up on something
Re inspect the cylinder piston and ring it's all gravy
But I noticed the crank seems a little stiffer than usual and the con rod doesn't drop when I let it go, it just hangs
So bottom end is fucked or what?
