Well, she kept quittin on me after about 20 minutes or so and wouldn't restart. I think I just ran it out of fuel, the second time, but the first time, it still had some in there. By the way, I bought the new speed carb-seems like it's using fuel up faster. Is it a bigger jet? If so, that means it should be richer, which I would prefer anyway.
Rings and piston look fine, machine marks are still there. Plug too. Everything's just black and oily as usual. Compression is a solid 150. This thing doesn't even have 100 miles on it. It seems sluggish, but I noticed a while back that removing the muffler cap really gives it a lot more power. I'm working on that problem as well. P/C clearance is 10 thou.
I already ordered a new jug yesterday. For 25 bucks, what the ****. So is it worn chrome or aluminum transfer? Did it get too hot?
I just cannot tell from the picts.
"Sounds" like you scraped the chrome off. Heat can do that, so can too much fuel.
How many miles? What fuel/oil mix? What type oil?
Coud it be fine grit getting past the air filter foam?
Inquiring minds want to know.
I've got over 1000 kms on mine, 32:1 various oils but usually semi synthetic.
I suffered some damage early on from grit getting by the cheezy foam air cleaner.
Use a good thick foam filter now.
How can too much fuel damage the chrome? As I stated, I've gone less than 100 miles. Standard cheap oil, 32:1. I'm running premium-I don't know if i need to, the compression is 150 psi. I'm not sure what the comp ratio would be. I was running the crappy stock air filter. I ordered the cone type instead.
