The quick answer is have a reputable shop who know these engines do a compression leak down test.


And to keep this posting on track for the thread I really do love that fold up and down handle on the Time Master 30. I use the dwarf mode [lowest position] to get under trees branches constantly.

So what is holding Toro back from just putting the Kawi on the TimeMaster already....?
Didn't you say once that that castrol is a good zddp oil? I use castrol Gtx. Not sure if that's the same as reg.
