Re: what are the long term effects of an air leak?
the markings on the piston are not hard scores more like a light indentation... like whatever was in there didnt have hard edges...the only reason i noticed them is because i felt it. its not visible to the eye. but i checked and checked again and the cylinder body has no indent or scratch at all. i did a little polish and she real pretty. and the rings are in good condition. whatever was in there never mad it as high as the rings. im going to order a new piston, pin and rings anyway.
as for the rattling... it wasnt there before. so its just irks me a little. the carb was delivered but im away this weekend so ill be running her sunday night and ill key you guys in.
