    If you want to renew the pushrod seals, you really have to do the big o ring and the smaller ones Kent mentioned. The shortcut some of you may be thinking of is to leave the pistons in the cylinders so you don't have to mess with compressing the rings and putting it back together. You do this by moving the pistons down to the bottom of the barrel far enought to remove a piston pin circlip and taking the pin out of the piston and connection rod. Works pretty well and if you are just doing the seals it makes for a quick job.


    Snowbum isn't arrogant, he's just to the point and doesn't do well with dumb questions. Considering the generous amount of time he, Oak and Tom Cutter put in helping folks on the airhead list I can't blame them a bit. JT

    I asked a question about converting a stock R80 into a g/s on the airhead list, and right away I was accused of baiting the list by Tom Cutter. I never posted again, and decided to not join the Airheads club. I guess that was a dumb question..... (sorry for the hijack).
