Mines smoking too, BAD, so I pulled the head and jug, the valve area looks like ?hit greasy, greasy, greasy, the plug is greasy, the piston top is almost all silver except for a small soot spot and the cylinder wall looks ok.
I think they used a cheater bar to put the head nuts on, man they were tight.
Tomorrow is measure the jug and take the head apart and measure day.
Rings are not stuck or broke
Any suggestions? Also where is the best place to get parts?
Valves are carboned up, piston measures 3.410, cylinder measures 3.416, top ring gap is .035, middle is .047 and oil rings are .08 the best I can tell, also piston pin has wear marks. I'm going to order a new .75mm O/S piston & rings, gaskets, and valve seals, de-glase the cylinder wall and hope for the best.
