The old wisconsins were bad for sticking valves. Put your hand oveer the exhaust and turn it. If you feel suction there, your exhaust valve is stuck. Put your hand over the air intake on the carb and feel for pressure blowing out.

 

 

you guys are pulling all the bean cutlers and ride masters off the market, i cant find one under 1k, but anyway when i bought my grounds keeper it would hardly start, back fire through the carb and all that mess so i pulled one plug out and did the finger in the spark hole trick an it was fine so i went to the other plug and i ccould see the valve stem i cranked it didnt move so when i got it home i changed the oil, cleaned the gas tanks "mine has 2" freash ultra 93 from sunoco new spark plugs and some marvel mistery in both cylinders, cranked it put new plugs in , also put sea-foam in the gas, oil, and a shot on the carb it gets smokey for a minute but i've had it for 2 years the valve never got stuck again... just thought i would pass the info,,

Jim what are the engine numbers on the wards?

i will try to read them today Jerome, but the numbers may have been rubbed off from the cover that was on the machine for the last decade.

From the information that I have been able to gather, the Ridemasters are as hard to find on the west coast as the Bean Cutlers are here.
