I have one piece guides. My valves also rotate. I guess that is in the tappets. So do you think this engine has been worked on?
I put a micrometer on the stems and the guides and it shows no difference.
The oil pressure is good when cold, but will lower when engine warms
I have a friend who is a very good old school mechanic (rebuilds engines and trannies for a living). He told me to pull the valves and he would stop by to grind the seats and the valves. I thought lapping would be fine because I didn't want to bother him. Based on what you are telling me, I am going to bother him.
As far as rebuilding, I didn't tell you the whole story. When the compression got real bad in the summer, I decided to buy another 8N before I got into this project. I can not afford to be down because I cut 4 acres and needed a new machine immediately.
So this 8N, I will be selling. So if I can get the compression up to where it is very accepatible, I will have a clear conscience when I sell it.
