she is alive the problem was me all i had to do was grab my ears and pull and POP!!! my head came out of my a$#.the lifters wear not bleed down should have paid better attion to your sudgestions thanx.:thanks
Sorry guys. Know this is a really old subject, but I have lost compression on my front cylinder!!! With the pushrods out, so the valves are closed, every movement of the kick start pedal gets a whoosh from the front oil return breather, just below the front exhaust valve spring. I have changed the head gasket twice, with James gaskets, but still have same problem.
I used a smoke generator on it, with no obvious result. HELP. Rings maybe?
