is oil on th eplug
Hello welcome to just answer I am master tech and will be able to assist you today.
how many miles on this now ?
ok can you tell me tha last time the valves have been adjusted and checked ?
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.
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 ?
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.
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 ?
ok thats bad.
lets do a compression test and a leak down test.
im betting now this has a burnt valve.
yes if this is the case.
lets start with a compression test and a cylinder leak down test
thank you for confiming what i thought could be the problem or problems

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.
