Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 3 years ago.

ok can you tell me tha last time the valves have been adjusted and checked ?

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My friend said to date advised so far valves have not been been checked or serviced, this is why i went through and changed everything else because of lack of proper maintainance.

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 3 years ago.

ok i would run through the valve adjustment and then proceed.

tight or loose valves on these are very common and are known to burn valves on this engine.

these have to be adjusted cold so i would let it cool down over night and then adjust them in the am.

also what is the fuel pressure at ?

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

so valve problem is probably whay plug #4 is wet when i remove it to see if fouled?

Not sure about the fuel pressure, however probaly wouldn't hurt to change the fuel pressure regulator? My tool system is limited on the pressure check.

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 3 years ago.

dont change it yet,

is this missing ?

im now thinking after your last reply this might have a valve issue.

# XXXXX spark plug is oil or fuel fouled ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
i'm going to go pull it, I'll be right back.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
oil fouled
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 3 years ago.

ok thats bad.

lets do a compression test and a leak down test.

im betting now this has a burnt valve.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
burnt valve = complete valve job on the engine?
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 3 years ago.

yes if this is the case.

lets start with a compression test and a cylinder leak down test

Pin point answers with years of experience from Master Tech made exact sense. Since I'm not an expert, it was great knowing that an expert was able to respond as quickly as possible in order to confirm what I beleived to be the problem. I was hoping you would come up with something that I may have missed before asking for your help, but you are correct with your answer, and I will try these repairs . Thank you.
