ST 165 Engine tear down

Postby JohnNK » Fri Mar 15, 2013 8:06 pm

Greetings,
Just picked up a spare long-block for my ST65. I am beginning the tear down process. What size bolt is used to rotate the crank? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I dont like using a bolt. I get a large open end adjustable wrench and turn the crank against the pulley key. It minimises thread and bolt problems. It also allows you to turn the crank both clockwise and counter.

17mm or 19? Just crank the bolt in there and turn it. I've done that for years with no issues.
