Just bought fl350
« on: March 21, 2016, 01:25:32 PM »

Hi, hoping you can help.  Bought a clean low hour fl350.  Runs fine but has an external gas tank.  Did some reading about this a found that some people went to that set up because of the fuel pump?

That led me to check the compression.   I am at 105.  Then I read to add a little oil to cylinder ......checked again and it went to 145.....

Do you think I need to do rings?

This was bought to just use in the yard and runs fine the way it is( may use 5 hours a year)   Starts easy.
I am not a mechanic but a know a little.....

Can you do the top end with the motor in the odyssey?

Any help would be great.

Thanks,  Kevin

YES u can rebuild motor in the oddy ..do a leak down test first but if it were mine I would rebuild it ASAP before something happens and it will cost a lot instead of a little !!!
