I have a copy of it. Just printed it out to make it easier for myself. Going to give it a good wash today, it’s pretty dirty from not being washed in a long time.Stink, YOU NEED A SERVICE MANUAL !! You can look up ALL THIS STUFF . Did I not give you a link for a pdf downloadable service manual ?
I know about the air box covers......Dont go by the notches...turn the lid until it seats properly and then lock it down.
Thanks, will check compression again while engine is cold. Going to try and come up with a game plan and work down that list of things. Seems like lots of stuff I have to do. But I’m excited to work on it.The cylinder to cylinder variation in compression is pretty high.
Dirt in the air box past the filter is not a good sign for rings and may be the reason your compression was low. Low compression can also be caused by rings that are stuck, stuck in place and filled by carbon due to poor maintenance, incorrect fuel mixture, lots of low speed lugging/idling, incorrect oil use or any combination of the above. Sometimes stuck rings can be freed by using "magic elixirs" which are poured into the cylinder or intake. Success is low. You might want to recheck your compression cold and if it's low see if adding about a teaspoon of motor oil to the cylinder through the spark plug hole increases it dramatically. If so the rings are stuck or shot.
I don't know much about your air box but I do know that the air box on my 2015 Ranger 570 FS has to be carefully installed to get it right. Throwing it in place and clipping it without close attention to fitment will almost certainly allow dirt to enter the engine.
I didn’t check to see if it would spin but I will. Pretty sure it’s the stock belt. Thanks for the axle recommendations.Stink, that bearing looks .........toasty. Will it spin ? What brand of belt ? I have used SIXTY axles with good results. CAIMAN are also very good but a bit more money..
