Re: [DML] Hot exhaust

Hi Nick

Check the compression on all cylinders and compare the readings. I would say 
that your exhaust valves on the affected cylinders are not closing properly. 
>From what you are describing I would say it's beyond adjustment now... the 
valve seats are probably badly burned now.
If I'm right you will see a low compression on those two cylinders. If that 
is the case then squirt a little bit of oil into the cylinder and take the 
reading one more time to rule out bad rings. If the reading stays the same 
and it's low you will have to rebuild the cylinder head. And make sure the 
valve lash is properly adjusted on all cylinders.

Good luck
