Needs some advise on the pulsar. shes been off road for a while with what im told could be ring failure. I kept feeling like the engine bay was getting too warm even after replacing the rad for a mishimoto and new fans. oil pisses out of the catch can and dip stick. I did a compression test which was 160 on cylinder 1 155 on 2 155 on 4 and 70 on cylinder 4.
My question is whats next. Should I need to have a look at cylinder four through a borescope to check extent of damage. I know that at some point it will have to come apart and bottom end addressed but is there any way of being sure of what to expect. What are the likely scenarios that can come of his. Im not mechanically minded so apologies if I sound daft.
Im thinking best new set of rings whack new water pump and check oil pump for wear and replace if required. Or if bore damaged a hone or boreout 86.5 or 87 and then maybe upgrade to JE or Toda bottom end. Money is a object so I cant go wild on it. Im thinking a bottom end refresh new gaskets and back up. Theres no massive rush to get it done asap. Would rather do it in phases.
Its been sat not driven for 7 monthish. Starts up fine but Ive just left it in to stop further damage.
Whats steps would you take??
