    Working on the front head stay mount, I removed the head and I looked down the bore and saw what I thought was a black spec of oil.
    I went to wipe it out and found it to be a small hole in the cylinder wall!
    I have not even started it yet! Glad I found it before I started it.
    Contact the vendor and asked for a new cylinder and rings.
    Should here from them in the morning.
    I knew these are cheap engines but that is just Bad QC...

    Just goes to show ya, that no matter where you buy a engine they can have defects, and problems. Now for a warranty.

    Just read your article on prepping a new engine, an informative read.
