Hi Jim, Jason here. When the engine was new, it would have had compression readings in the 190 to 210 PSI range. As the engine wears and tears that number will go down. The specification in regards ***** ***** minimum compression reading on this engine is 122 PSI. Anything below that and the engine would be considered worn out, damaged, or possibly needed a valve adjustment.

What should the stater output be?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have compression readings in the 60’s for cylinders 1,2, and 4 number 3 at 35

When you say stator output, are you talking about the ignition side of the stator or the battery charging side of the stator?

Those compression readings are no good. You can either do a leakdown test on the engine next, and see where that lost compression is leaking off to. Or, just pull the head and see if the valves are any good or see if the pistons and or cylinder walls are damaged.

Ignition side of the stator, I’m currently working on this model of engine I’m going to check the valves for the compression issues, but also have no spark

Are you using a DVA to check the voltage?

Have not yet tested but I do have a DVA

G​ot it. At cranking RPM, the stator output should be roughly 140VDC, give or take 10%

I can still manually run up the RPM on the throttle in neutral. I have change the fuel tank,, hose, fuel pump, plugs and pulled the top carb bowl to look for trash or gunk. Clean as a whistle.
