When should I rebuild my top end 2 stroke?

The top end of a two-stroke engine might need to be rebuilt if there’s been a reduction in compression that can cause hard starting when the engine is warm, inability to idle or a loss in power. Factors such as water in the gas or an improper fuel/air ratio can cause damage that causes low compression.

Will wet spark plug dry out?

If your spark plug is wet there would be a current flow throughout the body of the spark plug and air-fuel mixture wouldn’t ignite. To dry your spark plug soak the wet spark plug in petro,lallow it to dry and plug it to the engine.

What causes a 2 stroke to lose compression?

The most likely reason why a two-stroke engine has lost compression is an issue with the piston or piston rings. The piston is the part of the engine that creates the compression needed to run. If there is a crack in the piston, air can escape and cause a lack of compression.
