HEY HEY!! yea kinda new here so yea.............
my friend's .12fe just lost compression, i think it was kinda sudden not gradually, so i'm not really sure what happened
last week we replaced the sleeve and piston, put back the old head and tried to bench start it, but no luck
he tried using his old fashioned way of starting it, (remove glow plug, pour fuel into hole, put glow plug on, then the rest)
still nothing, and while pulling on the cord, the pull start, i noticed, between the head and block, fuel is spraying out, not alot but alittle, so this means an air leak causing the loss of compression
am i right or is there more to the loss of compression?
what can we do to fix it?
any suggestions apprecitated <- spelled right?
