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 10 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Spun a bearing. (slapping)
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 10 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
2. Replaced everything piston,sleeve,rod,rings
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 10 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 10 months ago.
Plasti gauge and it was within specs
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 10 months ago.

were the valves and valve seats inspected carefully?

Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 10 months ago.

was the head sent out and pressure tested?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
both was done and good.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I was thinking maybe a ring broke during installation?
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 10 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 10 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
rod and piston right . Smells like it burning fuel
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
passing
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 10 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 10 months ago.
That what i'm doing now
Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 10 months ago.

ok that sounds good
