  • Maintenance during engine rebuild

    My GP460 has been sitting for awhile so I took it apart with the intention of cleaning it out and giving it a tune-up. I cannot find a video or other clear information on what needs to bedone and what products (e.g. appropriate lubes, cleaners, gasket sealants, loctite color, etc) that need sto be used to optimize the health of the engine during the rebuild of a disassembled GP460 engine.

    I watched this video from GoPed ( that basically shows a tech replacing a top end. He uses some sort of oil from goped packets to lube the cylinder, but he doesn't seem to replace any gaskets, use any silicone gasket sealant, use loctite for the bolts on the case, or clean the engine components.
