I was hoping someone could help me out. I have a Craftsman lawnmower that was making a ton of noise. Sounded to me like it had fried piston rings. So I take the motor apart and really didn't find anything wrong, everthing looks ok. I am not really sure how to tell if the rings are fried or not. The cylinder has no signs of scaring or markings. The top of the piston and the head (and valves) has a lot carbon buid up. I was going to replace the piston, rings, and connecting rod and clean all of the soot off the cylinder head. What do you think? And whats the best way to clean the soot? My wife last summer ran the lawnmower with a gas/ oil mix also.
Thanks for any help
Don
