nitrous Im just wondering since you rebuilt the lower end of the engine if maybe the new compression is pushing a little oil by the valves now???

Grass Cuttin'............I did a valve job to the heads also along with the rebuild. I had the valves reground as well as the seats in the heads. New valve seals were installed and also the heads were shaved .005". I dind't cut any corners. Unless you call not boring the cylinders and getting new oversized pistons cutting corners. The only reason I didn't go this route was because the cylinder wear really was minimal. I'm just gonna put a few more hours on the mower now and see what develops. Right now it's got less than an hour on it. Maybe everything will pan out.
