I've got a rebuilt IP pump that I just put on my rebuilt engine. I'm having
trouble starting it.
I used new turbo piston in my 1600NA engine, and I ridge-reamed and honed
before installing them. Ring gaps are to specs.
My compression from 1-4 is: 380, 385, 380, 375psi.
I believe this compression is low, but know that the rings haven't seated
yet, and those are figures for a stone cold engine.
When I crank over the engine for a long time it ALMOST wants to run, and a
couple of times I have been able to get it to run for a few seconds. I
found that by backing the idle screw all the way OUT, it seems to want to
run a little bit more.
However, if I step on the throttle it dies immediately. Is the governor set
wrong? How do I set the governor?
