blow my head gasket a few weeks ago got it replaced and went back on and manage a
during the weekend i decided to do a compression test cylinder 3 125psi cylinder 2 and 1 150psi, so i sprayed wd4 into cylinder 3 and got 150psi which gave me a indication that the rings a warn.Put a bore scope down the cylinder and saw score marks on the wall, this was from the tiem when i blow the headgasket and leaking water into the cylinder.
so looks like the engine will need a rebuilt.
placing an order on the online store right now and removing the engine out tomorrow.

I think generally the apps are close but I seen some spikes compared to my Garmen. If you've confirmed your 80.3 you've got that thing moving bud. Cant wait to see how you go after a freshen up.
Wait untill you dry fit the plate and grate up, fun fun.

Took shitloads off. Mostly off the left hand front mounting surface of the plate. Started with the file thinking I'd take it slow. Ended up with the grinder. Must have dry fitted it with the grate and girdle 6 or 7 times.
You might be lucky and it won't be too bad of a fit.
Yeah the 08+ oiler is a must.

lucky this problem happened at the end of the season.
