    07 RXT 215 Compression loss

    Hey guys and gals. I have a 2007 RXT 215 that my kids took out yesterday and it just shut off on them and wouldn’t start back up. Turns over fine. Got it back home and checked plugs, 2 & 3 looked great and #1 had a little smut on it. Went ahead and checked compression and had #25 on 1 & 3 and almost nothing on #2. Any ideas???

    Your timing chain snapped and bent all valves? Remove the valve cover and see if the chain is broken..

    Either part it out and buy another unit.
    Or pull the engine, split it apart, replace the chain, perhaps bearings while its apart, rebuild the head.

    Engine is gone. Either you rebuild it or sell it. Its about a $3k bill to repair it.
