Hi, No compression means - The rings in the piston needs to be replaced, or the valves are stuck in the open or closed position. One or both of these is your problem.

If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

Have a Miller big 40 welder and the engine won't turn over

I'm not familiar with this particular unit--do you mean to say that the cooling system froze during the winter? If so, and the engine has overhead valves, the cylinder head, block, or both may have cracked causing water to leak into the cylinders which would have rusted the rings and cylinder walls (together). You are looking at major overhaul or even engine replacement (not what you were hoping). Good luck!

16 hp briggs on 225 welder. older 1 lunger. when it gets heated up it starts missing sometimes back fires then dies. runs perfect until then. replaced or rebuilt most everythingincluding coil. whats the...

Have you checked the compression both cold and hot if not do so... I think what you are going to find is you have very low compression when the engine is warmed up. what is causing this is the intake and exhaust valves grow from engine heat reducing valve clearance which is causing your intake valve to be slight open or no spring pressure allowing compression pressure to open the valve and blow back throughthe intake. Good luck
