I have a TX 200 and I would like to remove the washer between the top hat and the end of the Inside Of the piston.
It is not coming out on its own, I guess the moly is holding it in , is there some way to get it out?..Thanks for your help..

How about using a bamboo skewer to get in there? Or spraying in carb cleaner or whatever to break down the grease holding it. Or spray it with a garden hose nozzle. And of course there's pounding it on wood.

You are talkin the compression tube or the piston.
If piston try with a good wiping out of all grease and such. Then a good firm smack down upon a block of wood to dislodge the hydraulic effect upon the washer.

Actually it's called "stiction" and not"hydraulic effect" but I'm sure he gets your point.

Guess it depends upon your terminology as to the type of work you do.

If it's in the piston, then washing it out with any good degreaser should do it. I use denatured alcohol myself because it evaporates instantly and doesn't leave a residue. If it's still stuck after washing, try putting some black spring tar on a dowel or something similar and see if it will stick to that so you can pull it out.

since your cleaning it out anyways then Chevota's idea is perfect, a can of break cleaner will get it all cleaned in a jippy then just blow it out with some compassed air, if its available....if not no worries because break cleaner evaporates pretty quickly. 8)

DADAHH!!

CHEVOTA, I USED THE SHARP END OF THE BAMBOO BARBQ SKEWER AND THE WHITEWOLF IDEA "HYDRAULIC EFFECT " TRANSLATED TO THE "STICTION" EFFECT BY MYCROSMAN GOT IT OUT.

YOU GUYS SAVED ME FROM HAVING TO GET OUT AT - 20 DEGREES TO GET BRAKE CLEANER..

THE KNOWLEDGE ON THIS FORUM IS ASTOUNDING.. THANKS..

Had a similar problem years ago, solved it by getting one of those screwdrivers with a magnetic wand built in, push the wand down alongside the latchrod until it hits the washer and then "unwind" it using gentle traction. A really stuck one may need a bit of white spirit dropped in first.
