    That sounds just like a heat seizure, except that then the piston expands too much within an ordinarily hot cylinder; whereas it seems that here you have unusual contaction of the cylinder as well as heat expansion of the piston.

    On a bike you'd quickly pull the clutch in - it's at times like this that a manual clutch would be useful on a plane

    Interesting

    Thanks for the explanation

    Isn't the left pedal on a Quantum the clutch then, as in all aircraft?
