Got the cub's engine what do i need to do.

Postby 8N_Cub » Fri Dec 19, 2003 10:05 pm

I have recently taken the pistons out of my Cub because the engine was locked up. What will I need to do to get it running again? The reason it locked up was because I let it sit for about 5 years.

Thanks in advance for the help.

You related the engine was locked up, Were you able to detrermine why after the pistons were removed.My guess is that the cylinder walls are scared in some way shape or form so I would consider splitting the unit and overhauling the engine. Find a reliable machine shop that has experience with flat head engines. I have found with the cub engines I have worked on that the valve giudes have worn enough that will need to be replaced have them checked.You didn't mention the condition of the clutch or the transmission . so you may want to check the condition of them while you have the unit split.
