Default TJT 3000 Strip Down

hi all, i have recieved my tjt 3000 back from chris mounkley after it was in his posetion for the last 4 years. i have recieved it back repaired as prommised. what i would like to do is strip it from the outer case (remove tail cone and pull the combustion chamber out to inspect it.)

can i do this without damaging the engine ? is it just a matter of then putting it back together ? (carefully of course)

Well, I'm not giving official support to this engine, but what you can safely do is remove the outer housing, and inspect the chamber while still in place.
The most likely place for the 3000 to go bad is the inner wall of the chamber. With good lighting you can inspect it through the holes in the outer wall, and through the plug hole.
Erosion and burn-through will start from the edges of the holes, so look carefully there.
To remove the chamber, you will have to loosen the compressor and remove the shaft assy first. If the bearings are ok, and the chamber looks good, then it is best to leave it assembled.
