Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Is your engine a SHO?
Can you remove the spark plugs and look at the tops of them?
Ok, can you still remove the plugs and look at the tips of them?
No worries, there are no time limits here. I would like to see a pic of the plugs when you get them out if you can post it here.
Sounds good. Stay safe and dry
What cylinder did the third one from the left come from?
Ok, #2, Can you check the engine oil and make sure that there is not any metal or water in it?
I am also going to need a compression test to find out how good the block itself is.
Compression is rather simple, You can rent a gauge from a chain auto parts store, pull the kill switch on the engine, to stop the spark, install the gauge, Open the throttle using the Neutral only button, then crank the engine over until the gauge obtains a max reading. Record the reading. Repeat for the other 5.
Thats a good sign
What did you think on the compression procedure?
Yes, there are really no time limits here. Reply back when you are ready. I will get it and reply back to you when I am online.
Sounds good. Talk to you then.
