Stihl SH55 Blower Engine Tear Down
Went ahead with the tear down of the Stihl SH55 Blower engine without an exploded view because these documents are apparently closely guarded secrets by Stihl and their dealers.
Found out that the needle bearings where the piston rod attaches to the crankshaft had come out of the bearing housing and locked up the piston. No scoring to the walls of the head, but will have to replace the piston, rings, piston rod and bearing.
Does anybody know if these come as a unit or as separate parts? What can I expect to pay for the entire set up?
What is the best way to get the rod off of the crankshaft? It looks like I have to remove at least one of the crankshaft bearings in order to drive out the pin that secures the piston rod to the crankshaft? Is that correct?
What is used as sealant between the top and bottom halves of the crankshaft casing. It looks like some type of grey sealant and it probably needs a light coating on the face of the joint between the top and bottom halves before I put it back together?
Thanks for any help.
