I don't think that's a low ball price. I paid $100 for a complete engine.

Requiring the majority to change in order to accommodate stupidity is always a bad idea. Listing the price is the smart thing to do. If someone doesn't list the price ignore them or shame/flame them.

The "low tech" way is to take some cotton rope and feed it into the spark plug whole until the combustion is full. This will keep the valve from dropping. It's obviously easier if the piston is at...

I found it on Craig's List advertised for $1,200. I went to look at it and it was pretty much a piece of crap. The sunroof wouldn't lock down, the driver's window was off the track, and there was...

I'll have to look at that a little closer. I have another head I was going to put on anyway. This is just a temporary fix while I rebuild the spare engine I bought.

Did you do the compression check when the engine was hot or cold? A cold check would be more likely to show a problem. Did the smoking clear up after the engine warmed?
