Over time, the O-rings that seal the compressor valves get hard and brittle. When this happens the compressor will either pressurize the radiator or the crankcase of the engine. Grimmer used to recommend replacing the O-rings and gaskets, and cleaning and inspecting valves every 1000-1500 hrs.

Put a new radiator cap and new head gasket on the cylinder side of the motor. It must be a common thing with the trimmers a couple other people had the same problem. Half the block is the compressor side of a Ford v-8. Some how the air is blowing back thru

From the engine?

Have you tested the radiator cap?
