i first done a compression test 160 on the right 165 psi on the left. I've been checking wires and found the left hand injector wire hand the insulation rubbed off in a spot and the fuel pressure was 37 or 38 lbs.
The machine runs good but idles rough when it cold but runs better when it warms up. I had read somewhere that alot of short trips or the like can do something like this i dont how just what i read somewhere.

Sparkplugs are fresh and look good I just thought i'd ask those that know I'm learning more and more about this machine. Oh yeah it was gas in the oil. :oops: Thanks Guys.

My 2005 700 efi would get gas in the oil also, would actually cause oil level to rise. Never caused any issues though, i just changed oil frequently. could try removing the fuel injectors and priming the fuel system by cycling the key a few times, then leave it on and see if the fuel injectors are leaking fuel

i wondered if the injectors were leaking but did'nt know how to check them. they seemed to hold pressure when i checked the fuel pressure it was 37 or 38 psi. I do try to keep my oil changed on a regular basis. it's the life blood of the engine;)

Yup those injectors are leaking. Time for some new ones or at least rebuilt one's.

Lol. I know what you mean. I was trying to find a strainer for my Carter p72118 fuel pump. I guess I'll have to order that too. I was looking at the bosch injector's I've had pretty decent luck with there products. Thanks
