    There are only 8 nuts that need to be removed to replace the cylinder on 2-stroke Chinese centre mount engines.

    If you have broken one of the bolts on the intake manifold side of the cylinder, you should be able to (carefully) remove the other bolt; then the intake manifold should slide off the broken bolt.

    It's a fairly easy and straight forward job, though i've seen some people (who claim that they're mechanically inclined) create unimaginable f#$kup's (that were completely avoidable) when working on these engines.
