Default RE: 50SX max engine

Once the sleeve is out the rod should slide back and forth a few mm. Sometimes its stuck but with the crankshaft at TDC it should slide enough to pop off the crank pin. You might have to shoot some WD40 up from the bottom

I do not know abouit the 50SX but on some OS engines this is not so. Even with the sleeve out the rod/piston assembly will not slide back far enough on the crank pin for removal. If there is a hole in the back of the case this engine is of that type.

Is there a hole in the back of the case?
