See pictures below... The cylinder walls are still smooth even at the spot where the piston seized. The piston area is a little rough, I was thinking maybe cleaning that up with sand paper. The rest of the piston looks and as does the ring.

Just got the Puch Maxi running this after noon and was doing 35-37, not going WOT at all and variating RPMs to help with break in...

I had no air leaks that I knew of. But when I pulled the exhaust off the cylinder the gasket was wrecked. New gasket.

Also to note, I have a "B" cylinder and was sent a "C" piston from '77 mopeds. I probably was only a mile in when it seized.

Is this kit dead or can it be brought back to life??? Thanks.
