WOAH! 50lbs? waytoo low. tighten the head bolts but do not over do them and strip the threads, check for a valve thats stuck up a little by the piston, and make sure your gaskets are not burnt out or just no gasket at all. then check the piston rings, maybe there too small or big/loose and let air pass though them, last of all check the spark plug, tighten the plug but do not overtorque it or stip the mountings. ony
