    No need to yell, turn your caps off.

    spay it down with some nice penetrating lube and use about 1oz of marval mystery oil and let it sit a few hours and turn motor by hand 5 or 6 times and see if it cleans up with a good wipe down then put it back in the ski and start it on the hose and see what happens, my uncle told me to do same thing with a XPL that i am picking up, he owns a garage and does this all the time with small engines.

    Turn your screen resolution down then. Internet etiquette. Caps = yelling.

    used some penetrating oil, doesnt realyl matter what kind and like 1500grit sand paper and just lightly sand away the rust.

    I had the same thing on my cylinder sleeves and it worked great. Put it all together and still had 155psi.

    After doing that i read in the manual that it tells you to do the exact same thing.

    oh, i actually used water to wet sand mine originally, and it worked fine. Just dont sand hard.

    then I read in the manual to use oil which makes more sense.
