    Hi all,
    I am having some issues with pickup and start/stop with my Paragon 3 Alco PA 1. I am all good when I get into the engine with the mechanical aspects, but for the life of me cannot get the shell off. There are four slits on the sides, and two to the rear of the engine for leverage, but it just doesn't seem to budge. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Take a look at Spookshow's website on this particular model. He has some hints on shell removal at the end. But it's also good to read up on its quirks and what not.
