First ride made. But...

Diagnosis:  no compression in the left cylinder.  :(

Maybe, if she didn't run for quite a while, its just the piston rings sticking. Or the valves having too little clearance.

I checked the clearance again, not that. I'll hit it with some compressed air tonight and see if I can tell where it's failed.
