As for the theory, I'm really leaning toward a ring problem in spite of the fact that the motor seemed to have good compression. I know it does now. If I'm not rolling fast enough when I pop the clutch the compression will bring me to an instant stop. But, it did that with the Opti too.
Does it seem to take more effort to get it started than before? Does it seem like the compression is higher now?
