Post  WV. FLYGUY on Mon Jan 01, 2018 6:10 pm

Well its about 3 degrees here and snow and and was getting a little bored so I started putting my O.S. LA 40 back together after a lenghty cleaning and lubrication that I started several weeks ago. Now for the dumb question here. And I should be smarter than this but..... I did not remember how I took the piston sleeve out and am trying to figure out where the ports are supposed to be positioned as I put in back into the cylinder. I took several pictures for the experts here. I always work on the little Cox engines and pretty well know them but this one is a little new to me. Thanks for your help forum. You guys are great here.

I thought the sleeve lined up with the alignment pin on the top center rear of the crankcase. Also the con rod beveled edge goes towards the crank web. Not sure but on some OS engines the piston has a direction too. I always mark the piston exhaust side before tearing apart.

Is there not a little 'pin' sticking up on the case and or a notch in the piston liner to line them up? Its been a while since I rebuilt an LA 40 that I used to have.

Well you are correct. There is a dot in the rear of the sleeve that lines up with a dot on the cylinder. Got it. Works perfect. Thanks a bunch .

Thanks Jason. I am a slow thinker and typer, and must have been typing while you replied. But, it is good knowing I at least remembered something from rebuilding an engine.... Very Happy
