It is not yet the winter of despair but I'm worried for my second born MS200T. I fear that one day it'll no longer be the powerful slayer of hardwood timber as it has been for nigh on five or so years. My first born MS200T (2009 vintage) tests at 135psi cold and 120psi warm (Gunson Hi-Gauge) while the aforementioned second MS200T tested at 150psi cold–and it kicks arse. The older MS200T starts and runs fine but bogs down when in the cut. Based on the above mentioned compression tests I'm thinking time for new rings? I want to get my old MS200T back in the game before the newer one gets tired. Any ideas. As usual wishing spud was nearby or at least in the same country...
Hi guys, i realised that these have all been mentioned previously, i'd just like to collate it all into one thread to get my head around it. first off, im looking for a compression tester. i've heard good reports from the gunson hi gauge tester, what are your views on this? second, i'm after a decent vacuum AND pressure tester that i can use for both my crankcase and carb, can anyone shed some light on this subject as it seems to be a bit of a cloudy area. thanks in advance chaps
