Hi all, first post on the forum.
I am tearing down an original CB350 motor with less than 2,500 miles on it. I've removed the valve cover and cylinder head, but cannot seem to get the cylinder block off of the bottom end/pistons. According to the service manual the cylinders should just lift up off of the pistons, am I understanding that correctly? If so, how can I get this thing unstuck? I've tried smacking it with a rubber mallet on various parts that aren't finned, and it won't budge. I've heard I can't try to pry beneath the fins or they'll break. Any tips?
