Sorry I forgot to post the info on the motor, every summer I try to rebuild something lying around our yard to get it running then sell it instead of bring it to the junkyard.

this year was a baker tornado chipper/shredder model 612 - 3.5
the motor is a tecumseh 3.5 hp model H35-45614S I havent had much luck finding a manual for it, but did find a nice breakdown on

I didnt do anything to the valves but wipe them down on top, they seat nice and tight when they are down by eye (is there a test for that)? The camshaft is timed correctly with the crankshaft, there are 2 notches that you line up accordingly on the gear on the camshaft and crankshaft. I reused the head gasket which i think would solve my compression problem because you know how they get squished after torquing the head down.

Any other info available, thanks in advance for the help!
