/ Late Fathers PT-422: What should I do with it? #51
Was able to try the Seafoam top end clean(the kind you spray in to the carb). Knock on wood, it ran flawless after using almost an entire bottle. I was able to run the rototiller and push blade for about an hour. Lots of starting, stopping, idling, high rpm. No hiccups. Feeling pretty good about that.I'm wondering if a valve is sticking. Try a good dose of Sefoam and Marvel Mystery Oil.
One slight newer issue, a lot of squeaking when turning. The greaseable pivot points have been greased. Maybe hydro seals around the pivot ram cylinders? Can those be lubed?
Edit: Another thing I noticed is the muffler heat output. Very hot on the right side(facing front) with a lot of volume coming out. Left side seems much lower air volume and much cooler. I dont know how the muffler is designed so that may be normal. Thoughts?
