Skimming a head 9 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 29
howdy all, My 2 started misfiring on the second cylinder this morning, Ive replaced the plugs all the leads are fine, compression tested and there is no loss. What do ye think is it time for the head to come off and get skimmed?


Thanks

I wouldnt be pulling the head off it just yet if the compression test came back ok. Have you checked the dizzy rotor arm and it could also be the injector is passing to much fuel to burn.

Check for carbon built up on the arm.. Clean it down with a little bit of sand paper
Clean the points aswell in the cap.. Make cap or arm arnt cracked or anything mate.
