Question about Garden
I just installed a new piston and cylinder on a stihl 026. It seemed to go well, but the piston gets stuck at the top of it's travel and won't let the crankshaft turn further. If I manually rotate the crankshaft in the opposite direction the piston will lower but it sticks again the next time it goes up. what is the most likely problem?
Sounds like you are topping out.You may have purched the wrong cylinder or piston combo.If its an aftermarket combo thats probably the problem.
