Hey Spriddle I need your or someone's opinion on the valves of my cart. My compression is down and the motor smokes some when you first start it but not after you run it . A sign to me the valve seal are gone or rings. My question is what do you think about pulling the head and grinding or lapping the valves and replacing the seals? Would it be worth it hoping if the valves are causing me to loose some compression . Just trying not to pull the motor right now.
