Any engine that burns oil should be given a compression check and then have the compression rings replaced if they leak.

196cc Honda clone engine burns oil.can this be fixed by replacement of top compression ring?

You don't replace just the top ring, you do them all

If the cylinders are not bored, it could be no ring replacement
will help

You need to ask that at an engine machine shop, in person

If your doing your own work & did a head gasket & not heads
& valves, your doing a lot of work & not fixing much when
you had the chance

You ask a question no one can answer

You don't say it has 150,000 miles & is worn out

If that is the case, you also bore the motor & do a complete
rebuild & have the shop do all the work but install the short
bock & then you do the head install & the rest

How old is the mower? Is it OHV or flathead? Does it burn oil? Low compression in these small engines is usually caused by bad rings. Try putting one-half teaspoon of motor oil in the cylinder, crank the engine without the spark plug in, replace the spark plug and try to start the engine. If it starts and runs, then the rings need to be replaced. By putting oil in the cylinder, you re-seal the rings to the cylinder wall, this is only temporary. Deglaze the cylinder wall and replace the rings and you should be good to go.

Honda iGX 440 smokes at initial start up and burns oil. I did a leak down and it shows constant air flow out of the muffler. Do the exhaust valves get burned on these engines?.

Yes the exhaust valves can be burnt, however is there any pressure in the crankcase when you do the leakdown test? Ex valves normally cause lack of compression and not oil burning. If rings are worn also then you will see pressure in the crank case

I am blowing oil out of the vent from the valve cover on a 70's 6040. Any answers to this problem?

This is called blow-by. Start with compression test to find out is rings are ok. Need more information like gas diesel, model number of engine. So here is a general run down. Compression is getting into crank case. Several things can cause this. Possible causes are bad valve guides, rings, head gasket valve stem seals. Compression test will tell if low cylinder. If this is ok for your year model look to valve stem seals. If two cylinders next to each other low. Possible head gasket leak. Use compressed air 60-90 psi and listen were air is going. If blowing into crank case or intake exhaust manifolds. If crank case rings if not valves. I am going to assume your engine is burning oil or using more then normal. Possible white smoke from exhaust. If this is the case and compression is good valve stem seals should fix it. Hope this helps. Remember when compressing cylinders have both valves closed on top dead cylinder.

I have a Honda GX240 that burns oil like crazy. Rings are perfect as are the valve guides..what's the problem?

one major problem is how much oil u put into it,
if you over full it ,
on the down stroke the oil will compress,
forcing the oil,between the rings,
causing it too burn.

Why would my 96 honda civic be burning oil

Is it burning it or leaking it? If it is burning it then it could be caused from worn out valve seals or valve guides or worn out or cracked piston rings. The engine will have to be torn down to fix a problem like this. You may try using a product like motor honey or lucal oil stabalizer to help slow down the oil burning. There is no easy fix for a problem like this unfortunately

My 95 Accord 4 cyl burns a lot of oil. Compression is good. Is the oil more likely coming through rings or valve guide seals?

It means that your piston rings are worn out or the compression chamber or sleeve is worn out..4 stroke engine has compression rings and another rings for oil only..So even though you have compression it does not mean that your oil ring is not worn out..
