In case the Piston and Cylinder are scrapped, then you should change the complete kit, or you can also get your cylinder bored and use the oversize piston. Boring the cylinder is a very complicated job and should be done by experts only. You should also get the new rings for your piston as the old ones might also be worn out. The bike will not perform properly in case you use the scrapped piston and cylinder. The bike will use a lot of engine oil and make horrible noise with this scrapped piston and cylinder. The scrapped piston will also damage the cylinder more and might make it unusable.

Camshaft on a 2004 Suzuki Forenza will not turn anymore can not lining up with the timing marks how can I turn it to make it lines up with the timing mark


Not knowing how far your cam timing is off, your valves may be hitting the top one of a pistons. That may be why cam wont turn anymore.
May be best to back up the cam a bit, remove the spark plugs & with screw driver or wooden dowel probe the cylinders to see which piston is near the top.
Then rotate crank a bit to lower piston down the cylinders DO NOT USE STARTER to rotate engine while timing belt is off or valve damage may occur.

Audi afu timing belt timing marks


If you have a dohc engine like i have (2.3i) this is what i did. i could not find any markings on the covers to indicate tdc so i did what i've learned from an "old timer". Remove the no.1 spark plug (cam pully), take a big screwdriver and stick it in the hole until you feel the piston. Turn the engine clockwise (as the motor turn) always keep the screwdriver with one hand you will see and feel the screwdriver moving up or down depending on where the piston sits. When the scredriver start to come up, start turning slowly until you will feel the screwdriver will stop for a second and then it will dip down again. Turn the engine anti-clockwise until you will feel again that slight hesitation, remember it is all about feeling. Once you have that slight hesitation just before the screwdriver wants to move up or down that is your tdc on your sub assembly. Your cylinder head timing pully should have a dot on it. On the cover behind the pully is a cut out about 6mm, line up that dot with the mark and you should have the tdc for your cylinder head. Alternatively if you cannot find any markings do the following. Remove your tapped cover, turn the cam pully until your 2 front lobes of your cam faces upwards like a "v". If it is done correctly your timing belt will go over the pullies with ease.NB!!! It works for me (experience) if this sounds complicated i suggest that you get professional help.

94 yota pickup V6. Timing belt failed, replaced it, now it's running rough and lacks power. Ideas?


The engine is a free running type so bent valves should not be the problem. Recheck the timing marks on the camshafts and crankshaft. If you are one timing belt tooth off, the engine could run but run rough. With the number 1 cylinder piston at top dead center, the camshaft marks should be lined up with their "TDC" marks and the crankshaft mark should be at 0 deg.

If the distributor was removed during the belt replacement, make sure it is in time with the crankshaft timing mark. When the No. 1 cylinder piston is at top dead center, the crankshaft timing mark should be on 0 deg. and the distributor rotor should be pointing to the number 1 terminal on the distributor cap at the same time.

My 16 year old son ran straight gas in blower for approxiamately 5 min. until unit shut off. Piston has not seized up in cyl. head. It's trying to run but won't. Without tearing it down, what parts...


Yep , Sounds like the rings have probable seized to the piston. It will probably be on the exhaust side so you may be able to take off the muffler and look inside the cylinder there to see if there are any score marks. Good luck.

HI, I have a Suzuki LT80, it starts ok but it smokes like hell and there dosnt seem to be much compression what could this be? thanks.


It seems you have worn rings and/or barrel and piston. You will have to get the barrel off the engine to ispect. Unbolt the carb and exhaust from the engine. Unbolt the 4 nuts on top of the head. Remove the head and barrel from the engine. Inspect the piston for scoring and wear. Remove the piston by removing the circlip next to the gudgeon pin. Do not drop the clip into the engine.(stuff some clean rags in the engine under the piston. The gudgeon pin can now be pushed out of the piston and the piston removed.Have the barrel and piston measured for wear.
If you're on a tight budget you can replace rings only but this is a penny wise pound foolish solution. You'll have the same problem in 2 months time.
It is best to rebore the barrel and fit an oversize piston and new rings. The barrel can also be resleeved but this is a more costly option and should only be exersized if you cannot obtain an oversize piston.

Suzuki GSX 600 F (1998) soft front brake, I have upgraded to braided hoses but brake lever still feels spongy, can I upgrade the master cylinder or do I have to accept them as they are?


you can renew the master cylinder seals, the calipar seals can also cause the lever to feel spongy, they grip the pistons and pull them too far back into the bores instead of letting them return just enough to realease the brake, in this condition when you apply the brake most of the lever travel is just pushing the calipar pistons out to reach the pads and the little travel that is left is pushing the pads on to the disc, hense the spongy feel

Stihl chainsaw 066 died


mr siegs
remove the muffler and look inside the cumbstion camber and look at the piston.if you see marks (score) on the piston the piston and cylinder are bad and need to be replaced.this is caused from a lack of lubercation to the cylinder,possible water in fuel,spraying starter fluid into the saw,bad oil to fuel mixture,old fuel has no lubercating value.any more questions please feel free to contact me
