For 3 long weks i tried to blow it and . . . . Nothing lol the bottom end looked practicaly new and the jig and piston were not that bad given the circumstanses . . . I even held her wide open with no load for a good 5 min before i decided its not gonna blow and stripped it for parts
that is what sold me on the grubee motors . . . I spent 3 weeks trying to kill one and it took a beating like joe pechie in casino and didnt even flinch
You didnt really want to blow that engine man..... I could have trashed it in less than 5 min. easy, straight gasoline with no oil in it and bingo ....... dead 2 smoker...lol...!
Nothing in that grube engine that is any better than what is in some of the others, same ole cheap chinese stuff, china lume case, china chrome cylinder bore, china lume piston and same bearings and ring as mseveral others.......
But hey at least you had fun trying to blow it without actually meaning to.....lol!
And now you have some extra parts for other projects.....
Fun fun fun....
