Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors
I took this engine apart got a new set of rings from Brigg S. a set of gasket check the new rings in the cylinder bore the gap was about 0.005 gap .and it still using burn it dosen't leak oil so where is the oil going .for it to need oil .
Deglazing the cylinder isn't required but helps the rings get their own good seal. Check or make sure you staggered the ring gaps on both the compression and oil scrapper rings and that one of the oil rings didn't fold over during installation and get between the piston and cylinder. If by burning oil you mean it's smoking a lot, are you sure it isn't the assembly grease or the oil that was already in the cylinder and muffler from the old rings. If all the parts are installed correctly, let it run a while to get up to operating temperature and see if the smoke clears up, if it's getting fresh oil from the crankcase you won't hurt it to run it long enough to get hot and burn all the old oil out of the muffler. If it continues to smoke, a light honing of the cylinder may be in order.
