    Ok I have a .21 force engine that is almost impossible to pull. It gets stuck at the same point every time. Its seen a half gallon each time and I have used after run oil faithfully. Tell me what could be wrong.

    Hey nitromtman it could be that your hydrolic-ing the motor with the after run oil. Meaning there is a chamber of oil traped in the cylinder. Try pulling the glow plug out and hold the car upside down till everything runs out. If this doesnt help then it could be that you need to heat up the head slightly with a blow dryer to get the sleeve to expand alittle. So you can pull start it. Hope this helps, let me know.
