Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
How are you measuring the bore and piston? Do you have micrometer. With piston marked .020 , I think you need the .020 over rings.
Yes, i would go with the .020 rings and check the ring end gap before installing them on the piston.
less than .015 inch.
It won't hurt!
No, sorry, i'm pretty much stock guy!
Thank you, ***** ***** to close and get me credit!
Yes, use the link in your email to get back.
Did you get your new rings?
Valves have clearance? What did the ring gap turn out to be? With low compression either valves are leaking, or the rings!
.015 end gap should work. A head gasket or warped head will let compression leak!!
.008 intake and .012 inch on the exhaust valves. Head gasket may need to be changed.
It will not affect compression!
You sure the valve is closing? That is a lot of clearance, but would not affect compression unless the valve is not closing completely.
Would be hard to start, and would make lots of noise.
Valve clicking noise.
Did you compare the two cam gears?
Where did the camshaft come from? What engine? I'm not sure what part of governor is broken.??
Then it should start!
