Re: Cylinder bolt problems about to throw it away
Since you've had so many problems with this kit, especially the stripped block, the best thing that you could do is buy another engine. That way you could use your current engine for parts if/once something breaks.
If the actual plastic pedal stripped off the crank arm then you should wait until you gather enough speed before releasing the clutch to start the engine (try 7-10 m.p.h.). I know that from experience pedaling the engine until it starts will put plenty of stress on the pedal joint.
P.S. It would help tremendously in the future for you to use proper grammar and punctuation in your writing. Separate thoughts by paragraph as well. Doing so in the future will help us to help you by understanding what you're writing. I had to read your post three times to fully understand it.
