    Have a look at my header, I was wondering why my engine was running lean and was so much difficult to tune...

    OK, final results...
    -Bent header
    -Sand in the crank case
    -Very low compression, pinch is all gone.

    How come? .... All this happened in the same day :(
    1) Dirt entered the carb
    2) Hole in the pressure line cause it rubbed against the flywheel
    3) bent header caused a exhaust air leak making the engine running lean


    Conclusion....
    1) Clean more frequently your air filter
    2) Route the fuel line differently
    3) Stay away off the pipes
    4) Get a new mill!
