tonight i dropped off the cylinders to a local machine shop, he also told me that it was definatly from a leaned out condition, most likely the carb. luckily, he says he thinks the cylinder will be fine, going to hone them both, and will be able to pick them up tommorow. and the cost is only going to be $10 apice, which i thought sounded pretty reasonable. so after, i tore into both carbs, soaked them, rinsed them, blew them out, dried them and reassembled. now they look great, but how do i make sure that im not running lean with them. also, there is a electrical harness on each one of the carbs with a male/female style prong for the 2 wires. i cant for the life of me determine what the hell these do. they look like they would attatch to some kind of wiring harness, but i cant find one. also, they just bolt on the carb with 2 screws apice, with nothing connected inside the carbs, which makes me think it might be some kind of heater or something. anyone have any ideas?? one more question, how can i figure out where a correct timing setting would be on my sled. it may be right, cause it seemed like it ran great when i first had it out, but im not sure. all in all, i think this motor had a fresh rebuild when i bought it, done incorrectly, and just kinda thrown together. i think i was kinda had on the sale. what do ya do??
