    Default Dead cylinder on 50 hP Chrysler

    Have an 84 Chrysler 50 HP. Top cylinder won't fire Getting spark and fuel. Compression about 110 PSI, 120 on lower cylider. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not well versed on 2 cycle engines.

    Thank you

    Possibly the reeds?
    Pull the carb and see if they are ok?
    Swap the coils around and see if that helps?
    Swap plugs?

    Thanks Jerry,

    I did swap plugs, makes no difference. Engine dies when I remove the lower plug. Do you think the reeds would affect just one cylinder? Just asking. Been a mechanic all my life but not on 2 cycles.

    Thanks again

    Yes the reeds can affect just one.
    Each cyl. has it's own intake reeds.

    Don't order until you take them apart.
    It could be something different.

    Without seeing the motor?? that would be my best GUESS!!
