need help with a 50 piston

Recommended Posts

How does one go about taking the piston off the rod? I have everything tore down and that is the only part I can't figure out.

There is a small c-clip on either side of the piston where the wrist pin goes through. Take a towel and fill it around the the rod so you don't drop anything into the crankcase. With a pick remove one of the retaining clips and push the pin out of the piston. When you install a new piston (or re-install the old) make sure you put it on the right way. There should be an arrow and the word "IN". That means the arrow points toward the intake side of the head. With the front of the motor facing you the intake would be up and exhaust is down.

You should have a service manual for all your torque specs and removal/installation proceedures.
