A little help with a 2n

Howdy all,

A buddy has a 2N that ran really great all winter. He started it up a week ago and it's blowing blue smoke from the exhaust and the breather. It's also rattling in the valve area. I did a compression check and found #2 cylinder was down to 40# compression. The other 3 are close to 120.

The engine will puff smoke each time there is a rattle. This does not happen every revolution, maybe 3/4's of the time.

I figured a sticky valve. I soaked that cylinder with 50/50 atf and lacquer thinner for 3 days while bumpng the motor over twice each day.

I fired it up last night and no change.

On the plus side, I have no mosquitoes now.

Could it be something other than a sticky valve?

An old fellow told me to have a little patience. Today the cylinder was up to 60#. So, I gave it more atf and rolled it over a few times. Now wait some more. If it don't improve, then the side cover comes off.

Mystery narrowed down. Compression didn't raise any further. I pulled the side cover and everything looks ok. I put 10# air in the cylinder with the valves closed. No leakage into the exhaust or intake. Piston or rings or sleeve are the culprit. I'll have to talk to the buddy to see if he wants me to tear it down.
