Default Re: Ask a specific question

I had to try this to find out mine was stuck when i first screwed it up. Had to pull the plug, drop a long dowel in, then turn the engine to see if the dowel went up and down as the piston moved.

that would for sure answer the compression issue. Unless the head is cracked which I highly doubt. My guess is still the wiring somehow. I think a long pencil would work as a dowel.
