Re: Take a look at this, and tell me what you think
I couldnt say for sure what the problem is but from the color of the piston below the rings I'd say your rings are shot. I've taken my engine apart after 2,000 miles and the bottom (below the rings ) is still all nice and shinny- no blow by. How was the power? Any noticeable decrease? I would think with bad rings power would be down due to loss in compression. Just a thought. I would ask Norm but since you have her torn down a new set of rings i would think is a must!
