a lot of penetrating oil. let it soak for awhile, keep working at it, it will come off. just don't mess up your crank.

So, I finally got the drive pulley off! A couple of weeks of PB blaster, some heat - no go. So I supported the motor with a couple of bars under the pulley and hammered the crankshaft out of the pulley! Did not go easy. The crankshaft mushroomed about .010". I filed it down, and got it off. Now, on to the next issue. Re- bore or, just hone and rings? I need to do some more measuring. But, it's disassemble time either way!

If the piston was slopping, it's probably re-bore time.

I would re-bore. you've already got it apart.

Finally pulled the piston. Compression ring disintegrated!

Bore did not get scored though!

The ring and piston pieces must have gone out the valves! I wonder if the guy driving it noticed anything? I can't imagine it ran after that.
