Valves are not leaking now on the briggs and the only thing else I replaced was the piston and the rings which I used cheap ebay stuff.

Since it didn't do the bogging down under a load before the rebuild it leads me to believe the rings are the issue. Showing 80 psi on compression and I didn't really hear a leak with with leakdown tester. I didn't do a full teardown so the timing is still the same as it was before the rebuild.

Oh thats what im smelling then, haha im just pickin on you, got to have a little fun sometimes in a world that can be too serious, anyway, rings would be my guess, its never a good idea to pick the cheap way out, even though sometimes thats the only way you can go, i would suggest new rings.

Maybe that cheap chinese steel gets a little janky when hot?

But not when its cold.

Best of luck, Luke

I would suspect either you don't have the governor set right or you've got a carb problem.

Ignition. On my way back to the barn I lose spark and found the flywheel key was sheared. I replaced it but still have no spark.
