    Default DT140 2 stroke help needed rebuilding 2001 DT140

    Iím trying to rebuild my Suzuki 2001 DT140 2stroke engine and with all of the bolts removed that hold the engine together but for some reason I cannot open the case or housing. Are there any tricks to do this?
    Thanks

    Do you have the power head on a work bench? Havent done a dt140,but generally follow the service manual.

    The Manual worked great. I have my engine tore down and everything looks good but when I was on the water she made a lot of noises before locking up. I removed the spark plugs and turn her over and she made some scraping noise coming from inside the powerhead.
    I donít know what to do from this point..Can some point me in the right direction?

    If she did"llocking up" how did you "turn her over"?
    Are you sure the gearcase did not lock up?
    Did she make this scraping noise once power head was off?
    Did she make this scraping noise once the head was off? When flywheel was off?
