1983 RM80 stuck cylinder


Recommended Posts

Hi all. So im doin my fall rebuild on my 83 rm80 and everything seemed normal during dissassembly. But when I went to pull the cylinder it is really stuck on there good. I tried the usually rubber mallet but that didnt work. Got a dead blo from my buddy but that didnt seem to help. Did penetrating oil all around the base and studs. Tried heat also. I googled it and only came to weird wooden presses for old 3 cylinder kawis. I was thinking bout some kind of ratched strap to the top frame tube to just slowly pull it off but it seems like too weird of an angle to make it work. Any suggestions?

After a lot of penetrating oil and hammering i used wood to brace the cases and slowly pried with a bar on a part of the cylinder that I could get under (not the very bottom (sealing surface) but just where the intake manifold bolts on.) It broke very easily with constant upward presure.
