    CRT.5 Truggy RTR, frozen pull start...

    Hi all,

    I was on my first tank (idle), the engine gave a small rev then cut out. Now the pull starter is frozen to the engine. I mean totaly stuck there. Not a flooded type thing. Does anyone have a suggestion?

    Also, can somone point me to the link where I can get all the manual's etc... for the crt.5? I seem to be missing some stuff an can not seem to find them on Jammin's site.

    Many thanks in advance for any help!

    PS: The flywheel is frozen as well. I can not move it at all. This is not good is it... ?

    Have you tried taking the head off and looking at the internals, or looking in the exhaust output to see if the piston and everything is okay?

    Sounds like the conrod is dead, or the pullstart's messing up majorly.

    thats normal when the engine is new. take a screwdriver and place it between the flywheel and chasis from underneath to turn the flywheel.

    just take the glow plug out and pull the pull start. if it is still stuck then use the screw driver on the flywheel to try and pry it loose. it should be easy to pull. make sure your not flooding the engine. that is a notorious problem when the pull start locks up. also if its new and cold out use a hair dryer or a heat gun and warm the engine up. it will make the pull much much easier and will start up faster.

    Thought I responded to this already... but hey that worked perfect. Many thanks to all who replied.

    It happens after every tank 3 so far. Can I expect this to happen for ever?

    No, it will only happen during break in, hopefully. Just make sure that the engine is hot enough when breaking it in. I use the spit test. Also, between each tank, when the engine is turned off, turn the flywheel to BDC so that the metal parts wear in well.

    Thanks. I have done 3 in idle so now I will lean it just enough (if I have to) to get it up to 180 degrees for the next 7 or so... then I will start tuning it. I take a while to break in LOL

    Any breakin suggestions welcome

    Whew, for a second I thought you seized your engine or snapped the connecting rod. Glad to see everything's alright.

    Thanks, yea I was pretty bummed for a second there. I just wanted this one to go without any problems but who am I kidding? LOL. Once I get this baby going I'm sure I will have plenty of fun and plenty of time fixing it... just hoping the fixing part comes after a good amount of fun first... that is why I got the RTR in the first place! Actually it was for the full size servo and longer chassis but I'm also lazy too. Coulda bought kit and added that myself :P

    Many thanks!

    cool glad to hear that's all it was. make sure you loktite the front knuckle screws both upper and lower. they are know to fall out if you don't. you should also make sure you get the engine up to 200 degree's for proper breakin.
