    hey yall. i havent been talkin a lot on here cuz there aint been nuthin wrong with my truck! i LOVE it! haha.....exept fer now...

    yesterday my pull start wasnt engaging again. this time i found out it was because a screw that holds on the head was stripped, causing the engine to have a leak and loose compression.

    i want to know if i need to buy a new block, or is there a way i possibly "tap" out the hole.

    i'm tryin to stay away from switching blocks b/c ive never done it before and it looks like a big project. The block is around $35, but u obviously need to take everything out of the one engine n' put it into the new one. i considered calling XTM n asking for a new one maybe?? what do yall think?? thanks
