Gosh I hope so. This has been irritating to find. I've had my vacuum gauge taped to my windshield since September since I was doing laps around the subdivision trying to see if I solved the issue with each change.

Thanks guys! If this doesn't work, I'm running out of ideas.

Well I have two sets of heads, I spoke to the machine shop and I think I'm going to send them both and get them both redone. This is the second time I've had the heads off of this thing, in the unlikely event it happens again I want to be able to put something back on quickly. And if I have a spare set in the shelf it will probably live forever.

I hoped to drop them off yesterday but spent a bunch of time fighting with the drivers side head so it will have to wait till next Saturday. The machine shop comes highly recommended so I'm not anticipating further issues. The second set of heads I have are 68CC chambers while the originals are 76CC for this engine, I might as well try to use them to gain some compression and horsepower in the process.

The machine shop called today. The small chamber heads are cracked . So the plan is to do up the large chamber heads and if I want more power in the future I can come up with a new plan. Oh well

Hopefully get the heads back in a couple weeks!
