Default RE: 50SX max engine

The con-rod will come off of the crank shaft...It had a bear of a time getting mine off, but it finally did pop off. Make sure that the con-rod is sliding on the wrist pin toward the back of the piston. Mine wasn't doing this at first and needed some extra lubrication. If the con-rod doesn't slide to the back of the piston, it will never come off of the crank shaft. Also, for some reason, it assembles a lot easier than it disassembles!!

Good Luck
