Another point worth checking up would be the backplate gasket.


Also: Maybe a "longer shot", though not an unrealistic one, would be checking the cylinder base gasket....
These later M.E. designs bear a strong resemblance to the DC engines, and I beleive (almost certain) that the Snipe shares the transfer port design with these, i.e. the thickness of the cyl. base gasket is critical to the transfer function.
Too thick a gasket will more or less block the transfer ports, whilst a too thin one will upset the timing...
But I would save this check until everything else has failed....
