Scratches in Champion 2nd Stage Cylinder
Vertical linear scratches in the 2nd stage compressor cylinder
The valves came out of my Champion R15B easily after removing the outer crush seals. But now I wonder about the vertical linear scratches in the 2nd stage cylinder. They are fairly deep. Will it hurt the pump to run it with the scratches? If it will run that way for years, I don't want to fix it.
Champion R15B Valve Removal
Valves from a Champion R15B pump
How do you remove the valves from a Champion R15B pump for cleaning? The intake valve came out very easily, but the other 3 are stuck in the head. Don't want to force anything before I know what I am doing. See pic. I assume that I will need to replace all the crush seals.
champion R15A pumping oil into filter
The tube that goes from the governor up to intake is pumping oil into filter and into piston.
Would this be a governor problem or blow by problem.
Pulled head and see no excessive wear or broken rings or scoring.
What do you think?
