The crankshaft is ok, but the piston does not rotate, suspect the con rod is broken. I need to strip it down to repair. Removing the flywheel is the problem. Have been advised that the two grubscrews in the centre boss be removed and then reinserted in the two blind holes in the boss and that this will draw off the flywheel. On inspection this does not seem possible. Help!!!!
