i'm not sure how bad it is, in a relative sense, since it's the only seized cylinder i've ever seen up close. what happened was, i was trying to get my 14mm intake off a week ago, but the manifold studs were bent, so in trying to lever it off with a screwdriver, i dug a big hole in my gasket. however, i also failed to get the manifold off on that particular day, so i didn't notice that i'd fucked up the gasket. then yesterday, i was heading over to tony's to try again at getting that 14mm intake off, and i was at wot for a few minutes with this massive air leak, and soft seized my engine. i'm a real genius. it also should have been really obvious to me what was going on, because the idle was high as shit . . . seriously i feel like such a f(*^&ing bonehead.

it's running now, though, with a 19mm carb installed, but i'm nervous to push it at all. it has a whitich, round mark on the cylinder, and a corresponding whitish, round mark on the piston. i guess i should get new rings, at least . . . i dunno.
