Well had the carb off with reeds in place I've pushed the kick start down repeatedly and noticed the reeds don't open 1 bit and there covered in petrol.

I belive Rings have worn, piston top is black as to be expected but there is only what I can describe as burning to a small part of the edge of piston on exhaust port side.

No loose bits of metal or anything!

Must admit the piston and rings I bought where cheap.

I've snapped my 12mil spanner so couldn't take the cylinder off but I rubbed my finger around in there and couldn't feel any scratches etc....

What you thinking then? New reeds and rebuild the top end?

Doesn't sound too bad!
