    Welcome to the Hulk

    Two cylinders not getting hot? Or getting too hot?

    They are not getting hot the middle one gets really hot but the first and last one don't I have compression on all there but I think the ones not getting hot may not be giving enough

    Well when I start it up it is running on one cylinder why its running I will pull off plug wire one and it runs the same I do the same to plug 2 and it wants to die when I do it to plug 3 it don't do nothing like there not firing or the pistons are stuck it acts like it's only running on one piston I put new plugs in it and it seems like it's got a miss to it so that's when I was pulling off plug wires while it was running

    Welcome to the Hulk.

    First try unscrewing the spark plug boots from the wires.

    Then cut about 1/4" of wire back to expose clean wire.

    Rescrew the boots back on and secure them with zip ties.

    See how she does now.

    If no change, test for spark with a tester or remove the spark plugs and install them into the plug boots. Make sure the metal of the plugs are touching metal on the engine and hit the starter. (with the lanyard installed)

    Do they all spark?
