same to you. its all there. but i doubt compression should be coming out the crankcase vent instead of the exhaust. lol. its freaking my wife out, she says its looking at her in the moonlight. thinks its going "maximum overdrive" on her.:fing20:
One thing I could share with you is that old briggs and continental engines are not worth working on too much unless its still in real good shape. Easier and cheaper to repower with a newer engine. I did that to mine and it works reliably each time I use it.
stuck exh. valve, fixed. but i've had help, lol. someone put on the wrong head gasket, put the shroud on the headgasket (instead of on top the head), one bolt is 1" to long so they used nuts for spacers, some have washers, others no. woo hoooo! on a side note, the cylinder looks great!
