Hi Mike and John

I only have one concern with turning the crank to raise the sleeve.

If it is still stuck and you turn too hard on the prop you will bend the connecting rod.

I have already done it. If it won't come out easily DO NOT FORCE IT BY TURNING THE PROP.

Thanks guys. I soaked it in Paint Thinner for 2 weeks! Then I was able to get the piston out. The piston is visably distorted at the base. I am not going to be buying any parts because I just don't think its worth it, but I am going to clean the entire engine and try to correct the small warp at the bottom. I think it may still work so long as the top of the piston was not damaged which looks to be true.

Thanks for all your help
