This is what happens when you put your pistons in backwards!
I picked up another Pro this weekend. It had bad compression #s but I could see it had new pistons through the plug holes, so I got it for $450. This is what I found when I got home!

I was recently rebuilding the hubs on a small trailer and found someone had previously put the grease seals on the correct side of the hub and then put it on the spindle with the seal facing out!!!!!!!!!
My buddies comment was: "There's just some people that shouldn't be allowed to buy tools"
I think he's right about that. Oh, by the way, you can't fix stupid but you can sure spend a lot of time correcting their mistakes!

If they did that I would pull the whole engine down and make sure everything is done right. Just spend the couple of $$ for gaskets and seals. Make sure you go through the carbs also.

A picture to sum it up....
Yep they could have put the crank in backwards.... LMAO, I would also be tearing it apart just for sh*ts and Giggles... might find some tools down there.... you never know, maybe the page from the service manual that shows how to orient the arrows is underneath the motor, or hell it would make a good gasket, just replace the paper we tore when we took her apart... little goo on there, its all good!!!... good thing there are arrows... well lets see, they cant point forward, wrist pin wont go in, hmmmmm lets put them in pointing to the right side, cause hell most people are right handed... sounds good... man this new motor is gonna turn out just perfect!!!!
it's all in fun, but some people have all the luck!! a $450 pro... what a world we live in.
Hey Vern look at these shiny new pistons, I just got my "mechanics toolset" from sears, got a lot of pieces in the box, so that makes me a mechanic, and since there are so many in the set, I am a real good mechanic...

looks like I'm going to have to go through this one with a fine tooth comb!
