I changed the oil this winter and measured 1.5 back in.

I'll do a compression test later after I feel better. Dang decongestants...
I'll post what it shows.

And.. M&M just emailed me and said it would be $700 for a rebuild. I'm sure if the person that had it before me abused it and any parts are scored, etc it will be more.
I wish these carts came with an hour meter from the factory so we would know how much wear they went through.

Well, compression test was 90 on both. It's running fine so I'll just rebuild it this winter.

It actually runs @90 psi? Thatís like half of what it should be.... Iíd have to question the method or the tool. But as long as itís not making noise you arenít gonna hurt anything running it until you can rebuild it. Though if 90psi is correct I wouldnít stray far from home or you may be pushing...

At Motors and More, if your crank needs replaced it's an extra $300, just so you know.

I would check again and make sure throttle is wide open. Hard to believe this carts runs at all with compression that low.
