Re: Lack of Compression on a Kubota one cylinder
Ok I finally got it running. I opened it up to check the rings and ended up breaking one as I took it off. You couldn't purchase
the one ring so I put a new set on. Also had the head gasket
on the wrong way (man am I embarrassed) not sure which was the real problem but I got a 98% leak down test but the compression
never went as high as it was supposed to. It starts easy though. I'm going to run it for a half hour before installing it back on the boat.
Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
