Hey Crew, Sorry so long since the last post, duty called. I have put serious mileage on my honda gxh50 4 stroke after regapping the valves (300+ miles) and found out that bigger valve gaps on the intake and exhaust is both easy to adjust and makes a big difference in accelaration and top speed (aka more of both). Follow the pics to regap your valves.
I have also included pics of two gasket makers that will work, but are not recommended, as the red gasket maker has melted off my crankcase and head cover.
Hey, i recall that you said you turned the engine a full 90 degrees. do you think that oil got up into the engine parts like the cylinder and valves? that might be the problem...or your low oil meter might be cutting the engine short...
