Default Frozen Contra Piston

Hello,
I have a Davis Diesel head for an OS 46 SF which has a frozen contra piston. If I turn it in to achieve starting compression it will not back out when I loosen the adjustment screw. I have to put it in a vise and press it back up.

Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Thank you,
John Kos

If you will send it back to us with $15 we will change out the contra piston and seals and return it Post hast. Somehow you got this engine very hot. This a very rare occurrence.

Default Hmm...

So, I have to pay you more money to fix a product that went bad after only a few uses?

John, If you have a problem we like to ask questions so we can get to the bottom of the problem that caused the failure so it does not happen again. After 28 years of this we are able to do this. What we don't understand is why are you choosing this venue rather then a phone call?
