I think he means we'd like to see what you said in the P.M. for educational purposes.

Ok for what it's worth here it is.

" Okinox, the M22 is a real marvel of engineering and machining and is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. That said, a few of the earlier models were supplied with slightly undersized pistons and rings of questionable quality which caused a low compression problem.

Several complaints from disatisfied customers forced Mintor to take a hard look at their operations and based on their findings they took the decision to suspend all manufacturing and restructure their operations with greater emphasis on processes and Quality Control. If you purchased your engine recently then I believe you have nothing to worry about. Much more information on the Mintor 22 is available from an on going discussion on the F***** **** site, so check it out."

Port machining does not appear very quality oriented in my poor eye sight. :)

<div>Concerning the internal engine polished'm a little scared because it's the first time I see a bad cylinder polished.</div><div>Could polish better internally what interesting.

He says he has touched 2T racing engines and the same grinding, not to worry.</div><div>In the shoot rotating refine shirt.
No problem with the engine running perfect wrath.</div><div>My old boss said if you know of one thing it is best to keep quiet.</div><div>Slds.</div>

The whole cylinder remarks are funny to say the least. The DL50 ran very well and had one of the worst looking cylinders when it hit the market yet no one complained. ;)

Because nobody expected a cheap Chinese engine to be flawless. For Mintor to take the time to CNC machine the whole engine and the muffler but not finish the cylinder is very odd.

Will the nickaasil that covers everything. It does not seem quite right to me either.

This cylinder looks fine, I know this engine runs good!

I can't see what the problem is?

The engine has not rolled. I do not see what the problem according to a good mechanic and have seen them and not spend anything.

Nice pictures Capt'n. In the first one it shows nicely the finger or open porting on the two ports opposite from the exhaust. That would give those ports more flow area for sure.

Needs a new ring. It's not round not even close to sealing and there is no gap (no wall tension)

TimBle 01-31-2013 02:10 PM

RE: Any problem with Mintor22
 
AND YOU CAN TELL THIS HOW?

captinjohn 01-31-2013 02:22 PM

RE: Any problem with Mintor22
 
Actually the ring had a lot of outward tension. Also a big end gap (a place for compression too leak) and one area of the surface of the ring seemed to be void of contact...maybe caused when the ring was finished up.

RE: Any problem with Mintor22
 
and how pray can you tell that.....?
