Also i might have lost spark in a cylinder because of a plug boot when i was coming across that lake, but i stripped the coil wire back to expose more and it still wouldnt start

update: Checked the carbs took them off and cleaned them there fine no problems with them. I choked the sled by putting my hands on the carbs and it tried to start but no success. Bad gas im thinking maybe... idk i'll have to check compression later.

its deff having a compression issue the right cylinder has very little. i pulled it over and placed my thumbs on the plug holes and the right cylinder is weak. Im thinking it needs rings but idk if that is all the damage i did. Im going to have to take the head off sometime soon and see what the damage is. Its my fault though 3rd tank on a new rebuilt engine at WOT for long distances= death to engine and another lesson learned the hard way.

Does anybody have 583 engine parts for cheap ?

Might have burned a hole. I ran my engine 75-80MPH for 6MI. then I stopped to cross a road. Must have over heated from the lack o air flow, because I gunned it, and melted a piston. I'm going to take my heads off this weekend. Be careful; don't push it too far.
