Re: crak on the engine

if you think the crack wont affect compression etc etc bearing in mind that a two stroke compresses above and below the piston then I would try it and see.

Re: crak on the engine

if i use locktite on the outside of the rack will that help it

Re: crak on the engine

How did you discover the crack?

Did the engine have a problem ?

Have you removed the cylinder to see if the crack goes all the way through?

Re: crak on the engine

i discovered the crack bye talking the cylinder off and no the rack dose not go all the way through. the engine did have a small problem but i think it was becase of the exchaust there was only one hole in the baffle that was letting air pass through

Re: crak on the engine

This could just be a casting defect that won't be a problem. If it were all the way through I would drill a stress relieving round hole where the crack stops and then fill it with JB Weld. Of course welding would be optimal. It may even be a fold made during casting where the two flows of metal met and were not hot enough at that point to meld into one another
