Default RE: how can u tell when ur engines tired

erm. when the compression is low
when it stops for no reason when it gets to running temp
when you can push the piston out of the top of the liner
when theres excessive play on any bearing
when its no longer tight at TDC with plug out
ABC engine normally last quite a while (if set up properly) been using my cmb for 2 seasons now replace big end bearings and rod bearing but piston and liner are fine
[&o] not a dead one
