    Just Wanna Know Why. (No oil)

    Well I lost compression in the #3 cylinder in my SUV. This was the only ski I did not go to premix. Finally I know what everyone was crying about that didn't premix. Honestly I just kept putting it off. LESSON LEARNED!
    Everything looked fine, oil line was in place and clear and no leaks. Oil just wasn't getting to the #3. Spark plugs 1 & 2 had oil on them but 3 was dry. Why would oil not be reaching only that cylinder. From reading other posts the third cylinder seems to be the phantom. WHY?

    I have also heard those little plastic valve/couplers that are inline on the oil lines going to the carb fail.
