Thought on about it, try squirting oil into the cylinder and check
your compression. If you've still got no compression and your pistons
are moving and your valves are closing you might have holes burnt
through your pistons (Hey, you never know !)
Let us know what you find out
"After overheating when it broke down....". For most modern motors,
overheating is a situation that they cannot tolerate. But, I'm reminded we
could be working on a 72 Pinto... or maybe a 1962 Borgward Issabella.... any
other number of guesses can apply....
Personally, if I have a "cooked" motor, I wont spend the time of day....
this thing will turn into a hobby in short order. Cheap ain't!!!!
