Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Do you have the serial number from the engine?
Thanks, ***** ***** that you are going to need to do is a compression test on the engines. Lets make sure that the blocks are in good shape.
Sure can. There are no time limits here. Simply reply when you are ready. If I am on, I will relay then, if not, I will when I return.
That would be #6, what was the reading on it?
That is not good. 90 is the minimum on this engine. You are going to need to pull the head and check out the cylinder to see if it is scored or not.
Was there any aluminum on the spark plug?
That is a good sign. Maybe just a failed o-ring on the head.
With the ticking sound unsolved, it could lock up.
