Replaced cylinder 2 piston and rings. Now it is smoking white and smells like fuel. I unplug injector 2 it stops smoking.
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

ok thanks, ***** ***** the reasoning for replacing #2 piston and rings in the first place?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Spun a bearing. (slapping)
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

ok thank you, ***** ***** replace the liner also or just the piston and rings, #2 rod bearing spun?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
2. Replaced everything piston,sleeve,rod,rings
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

ok did you have the crank journal cleaned up and install oversize bearings or did you just plasti gauge the bearings and it was good

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Plasti gauge and it was within specs
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

were the valves and valve seats inspected carefully?

Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

was the head sent out and pressure tested?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
both was done and good.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I was thinking maybe a ring broke during installation?
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

yes that is exactly what i was thinking, only thing it can really be, i was looking up compression tester and looks like you can get a aftermarket one for about $80 http://www.tooldiscounter.com/ItemDisplay.cfm?lookup=STATU-15-25&source=froogle&kw=STATU-15-25&gclid=CjwKEAjwj92_BRDQ-NuC98SZkWYSJACWmjhlN8cZiR-rpFoXks1y3Jo384bloToCa2QRwLaelD4cRxoCC4bw_wcB

Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

my only other thought was that you somehow got the wrong rod or pistion

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
rod and piston right . Smells like it burning fuel
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
passing
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

yeah almost has to be a broken ring, everything else seems like you replaced or it was inspected. Have you rechecked the valve lash just to be sure?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
That what i'm doing now
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 8 months ago.

ok that sounds good
