Question about 1999 Acura CL
I have recently bought a field mashall series 3 and the engine is siezed and you can not turn it over with the starting handle it has a sidways mounted single cylinder 2-stroke diesle engine but it does have a plug hole on top of the piston not for a spark plug tho for a special plug for starting
i heard u can poor deisle in there and it might unsieze?
its not a ACURA CL 1999 put it cause my tractor wasent there
It may be a mechanical seizure due to overheating. If this is the case you will need to strip the bottom end and physically drive the piston out. Once this has been done you will (probably) need to re-bore or re-sleeve and a new or very good piston acquired. (oversize if re-bored) It may be that water has got in and it is seized up due to rust,if you are very patient and in no hurry you could free it using a variety of agents, ie Plus Gas, diesel, petrol, a mixture of all these,leave for a few days, the occasional tap with a piece of wood and a hammer, repeat regularly, It may work. Good luck. Tony
