A news I have to make it public ( ps I knew it for a while and there a few other things that I haven't made them public) but they will be in the next few months (1/2)

taffmasters advertise engine rebuild worth 1400 with ''NEW VALVES''
unfortunately he was too cheap to fit a set of new exhaust valves.

I was lucky to open the engine after 6hrs to find it out, but he could have done it for years and customers have been charged on full price

picture one show valves before he rebuild the engine and gave them to customer to prove he put new one Taffmaister..don't buy/trust!-20170329_152515-1-.jpg

(picture 2) exhaust valve the black is way far more compact compare to the intake (picture 3) you can scrub it out with your finger on the intake but not the exhaust one

we got ----> new piston ---new intake valve ---- use exhaust valve on 1400 engine rebuild

yes ...i knew it since the valves, told you i got stories (and more to come) ... we try to fix it with ''metal paste'' but didn't work out ...do you guys have any idea apart from having the surface completely mill? its about 1mm deep the damage and the sitting is 1mm higher then the complete engine case ....is that for a reason?

1)main problem of milling is if the engine case it's not 100% flat it could cause the reed valve to sit improperly FOREVERRRRRRRRRRR

2)do you guys think that can cause smoke on start after its been left resting for 8/12 hrs ? thick oil smoke for like 2 minutes

3)that's for me ...how it can happen? i mean, let's just be realistic there is no ''hard moving parts '' you would expect that from the piston/head/valves but not on a ''gentle valve'' that sit on the engine case Taffmaister..don't buy/trust!-img_1355.jpg

and ps. sorry for all this question but thanks a lot if you can give me some clue

Yes if the reed is damaged or doesn't seal properly the engine smokes at startup

Metal paste lol it comes in handy pen applicators now

if it doesnt work mill it and get a new reed petal

also in that case check the condition/replace the crankshaft seals

could be a lot of other things too but tis good to make a start

Now that I have seen the pictures of this full rebuild, "WTF kind of rebuild is that" I no longer question my first feelings and know that my intuition was correct from day one. Everything comes out in the wash and the clothes are now clean for sure, My big question is why, but I will never know the answer. I know that every shop I have worked takes pride in the service they give and would never take a risk on reputation. Why risk it ????
