Default Re: High Compression Engine: I Don't Like It.

Took the top-end apart, put the upper piston ring on the bottom, and the lower piston ring up top, re-honed the cylinder at a lesser angle, put everything back together and YAY, a low-compression engine again. That is, until all of the parts start to mate to one another again...

A few feet of scooting down the driveway, and it's an instant, easy start.
Power seems to be the same to me, whether high compression or low.
