Thread: motor trouble

  1. #1

    Default motor trouble

    one cylinder is pretty badly scored and both are already 2mm over, wiseco makes a 3mm piston but my mech. said it would be too dangerous to run the sleeve's that thin. Should i just re-sleeve this head or what? just looking for some affordable options and want to know what the hell caused this!
    thanks, dan.

    it never really seized thats what confused me. just always ran like shit, no bottom end at all with some top end power if you were really crushing it. im sure it was only a few hours from blowing though.

    so it was that way when you got it?

    can you take a real close up of the one with all the carbon build up? (piston edge)

    i would still lean toward cold seize but what do i know lol!

    Water ingestion caused that.
