I have not done a compression test yet. It is amazing how this things keeps running and runs pretty good for as much as it smokes. That is why I thought it might just be the valve guides. I live in s. Oklahoma
I made sure that it only had one quart. Do you guys know where to buy a rebuilt motor or is it better to rebuild mine. I seen on LVS website exchange for around $ 600 have any of you had experience with their motors?
I have had quite a few Yam's that the fuel pump went bad and sucked gas into the crankcase and caused the motor to smoke terrible. Once I fixed that problem I have had to burn out the muffler with a torch.
