I just got my picco 26 and was wondering if it was ok to put some after run oil in it before I start it?

Default It won't hurt anything!

It should turn over a bit easier also but, don't put too much in there just a couple of drops!

Default Not much but it helps to have the right tools!

I use a "piston stop" tool that screws into the glow plug hole to lock the crank in place it cost about $8-$10 at your LHS. Remove the C-clip or screw that holds the clutch bell on, remove the clutch shoes and spring or springs and then loosen the clutch nut to take off the flywheel and reverse the steps to put it back on but, check to make sure that the shoes and spring or springs are still good!

Yes, wrap the flywheel in a soft cloth and grip it with a pair of pliers. Loosen and remove clutch nut etc...

Default You can do it that way but,

If you slip and break off one of the flywheel pins it's new flywheel time! It only took me one broken flywheel to spend the money and get the right tool for the job!

I slit a piece of fuel lone down the middle and then wrapped it around the flywheel and then held it with a channel lock. It worked great and no sratches on th e flywheel.

If you have a .26 I hope you are oing to upgrade your clutch from the stock one, you'll never see the performance of the .26 with the stock clutch set up

I personally would not use a piston lock tool. It places allot of undo pressure on the connecting rod the bushings are soft. What I do is wrap a towel around the flywheel and place it in a vice then use a 10mm thin wall deep socket to loosen or tighten the clutch nut. No broken pins or undue wear on the piston rod or pin.

Just my opinion. Like I said undo pressure. No need for it.
