Engine wont start

Recommended Posts

I am curious why my engine is hard to kick... seriously hard. Decompression spring seems fine, valves are barely in spec ( shims next season) it feels like a dry cylinder, no lube if that makes sense. What could be the cause.

Sounds like you have jumped cam timing, and the auto deompression is no longer working at the correct time.

That, if it's hard to kick through the compression stroke.  The usual cause is a stiff cam chain.

If it's just hard to turn over even with the spark plug out, that's another matter.
