Hello. My name is Tan.

Could I get the complete engine model number please?

Have you checked for water in the cylinders?

Popping through the carb is water in the fuel, timing issue or water in the cylinders.

What was the reason for doing the heads in the first place? Did they find the problem that caused the heads to fail the first time?
