If kicking,at least 5-6 Quick kicks,one is not nearly enough.Better yet
,elec starter.After getting a DRY reading.squirt a little oil in the
spark plug opening to oil the piston rings and cyl wall ,and repeat the
test.If the pressure reading comes up,than there is a compression loss
problem.Stuck ring/s,scored piston/cyl walls.
,burned piston to name a few .Gasket leaks also.Did this engine ever run
properly in your presence?If not,I would start with knowing what is
inside the engine.Make sure that part is good,or you can drive your self
nuts just fooling with it every thing else..Been there on many times.
May your day be blessed.

| ||i guess it probably is the compression i but my thumb over it and a |
air came out but it really didnt seem too powerful i dont have a
tester is there any were i can buy them and what kind of cleaner is good
use on it? thanks for your help
Hi,Sean! When you check with a compression tester make sure to open the
throttle fully and ensure the choke is OFF.This allows for a true
reading.I wouldn't tear into the cylinder until I had done this like the
guys said and obtained a compression tester.And when you test it,you
hold the tester and have someone hold the throttle open and give the
starter a good healthy kick.BYE!
