Spark plug comes out wet after it bogs and refuses to start again. Keep in mind I have about 3 hours and counting of experience working with 2 strokes
I have been meaning to pull off the header pipe and replace the gasket. When I have it off can I align the piston with the port and check out the shape of the piston and rings this way? Or am I missing the concept entirely?
I also have a compression tester on the way and will check that out. Low Budget mentioned a 2stroke leak down test, I don't know what that is so I'm off to Google for some reading.
