Re: What have you done in June 2020

Changed the oil and adjusted the low and brake bands, lubed everything, and checked the tire pressure.
Adjusted my OF once more and I really think I found the sweet spot.
Went to get some gas yesterday, as soon as I back out of the garage and turn around, it started pouring !!
Maybe today.... :)

Re: The frustration of incompetence

Glad she’s in competent hands.
I’m betting the rings and valves are the low compression readings. Both having some problems from overheating.

Re: Leak Test Results - What Now?

Steve... What Mark is sayin is what you need. Don’t worry about the gauges on the leak tester. Just get one cylinder at a time at TDC, valves closed, hold engine from turning, chock wheels and blow air in. Listen for air coming out of either the exhaust or carb. (Open the throttle all the way). If y...

Re: Puff, Loud Puff, Very Loud Puffing Exhaust

For a sticking valve. Start by shorting each plug wire one at a time...if one has no change=that cylinder is not firing. They generally run pretty poorly on 3 cylinders though. Then I would check compression if you found a problem. Actually if it’s a authentic T muffler, they do come apart. Where do...
