Mechanically, that got a little more complicated. I just did a compression test, and one hole has a big problem, so I have to dive into it to see what's wrong.

stripped spark plug thread, there are good products better than helicoil... such as keensert. The old XR350 head is being held with 2 of these!

Fried valve or collapsed lifter?

Good luck
74 wag, 349Kmiles on original ticker/trany, except for the rust. Will it make it to the next get together without a rebuilt? Status: needs a new body.
85 Gwag, 226 Kmiles. $250 FSJ test lab since 02, that refuses to give up but still leaks.
