Default Re: 100:1 Mix

Ok, I tore the engine down. Attached are photos I took with the camera on my netbook. Today I am sending the piston to Duane so he can evaluate if I need to replace it in addition to the rings and cylinder. No sign of a poor chrome plating job. One thing I can say for Opti-2 is that the piston was not stuck like the one in the weed eater video when I pulled it out of the cylinder but came out easy. After this I will follow manufacturer recommendation and not exceed 40:1, even when using up the other 8 packets of Opti-2 I have left.
