Default Re: Have I blown up my motor?

Wel guess what...................... its done it again. I put the new motor, or the one with the new top end on. It started first kick with loads of compression. I let it warm up for 5min. Loads of smoke as I am running 1:16. I then took it for a short ride for about 2mins then when I got home it conked out. Then I noticed that there was not much compression. So I took the head off and although it was not as bad as the first head and barrell it was going to end up the same. I suspect that there was still some crud in the bottom of the engine and it got into the top.
I have sent an e-mail with photos off to the retailer, I hope he comes good with a new motor or at least let me buy a new one at cost.
