Swapping in another oppy would involve swapping in all the other little nuances i have on this oppy and that's just not happening

That anchor idea isnt bad, i could use it as a mace too

No difference with carb clean. Heads and intake are coming off.

Heads are off

Left
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 37 20180725

Right
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 37 20180726

Right and left
Craftsman GT3000 "MUTT" - Page 37 20180727

Left one has a few blowouts, right seems ok. All the head bolts seemed to be at a proper torque. I cleaned the carbon off of everything. I'm gonna order some head gaskets here directly and hopefully they'll get here soon lol.

Intake didn't show any problems either.

Last i knew it was about 90. These engines are set up with the compression release as part of the intake lobes so it always kinda reads there.

Can you turn the valves just by pressing your thumb on the valve and trying to turn it?

With them seated?

I went to switch the starter again but the one i was switching it with turned out to be dry and noisy too, so i took this starter all apart and greased it and put it back together. I'll put it back on tomorrow

Why not go dual Mikunis on each cylinder?

Yeah if you have a carb and manifold you know are good I say swap it on and see if it changes anything.
