this is just a follow-up on a previous post to help your knowledge is the post if you didn't see it

the problem wasn't any of the previous things, i had a leaking intake valve and a leaking exhaust valve...the way this was determined was this....when i pulled the starter with the aifilter assembley off, smoke came out of the housing and out of the exhaust....smoke isn't suppose to come out of the airfilter housing, $70 in parts and $70 in labor and i'm running a like a new motor....
