    How to get rope out of cylinder?

    I changed the stator, got her buttoned up, and the rope is stuck in the cylinder. I placed it in there to keep the piston from moving while I removed the flywheel. I feel dumb, but I don't know how to get it out without removing the head.

    Make a U shaped 'Shepard's hook' out of something stiff, like an old bicycle spoke.

    Did you drop the end down the hole?

    Or is it actually stuck in the cyl? Like you are caught between the piston and a port opening?

    An scratch awl works great. Should be able to get one from Lowes. It has many purposes, the one I have has a 90 degree bend on one end.

    i really think you should open that head up and look to make sure you did not snatch a ring or spin a ring or anything.. it would not take very long.. and you would be able to get the rope out easier..
