compression test came up around 20 pounds...need another top end i guess what do you all think

am I the winner?:bonk:

Pull the motor and then pull the jug. Best way to do it and do it right. You need to flush all the pieces out of the crank area and make sure nothing was damaged.

More than likely you created a hot spot on the piston from running lean. Zooks are funny like that so it is important that you stay on top of the jetting and even go slightly richer.

Hold on there partner!

What year 125?

For about 300 bucks you can have a FRESH motor in that puppy.

If you don't want to deal with it send it to me please.
