I found a 5 hp lehr for a low price but it needs piston rings. Current owner says low compression and blow by. I have pretty good mechanic skills but i have never messed with propane burning engins. Would i need any special tool or knowledge or is this a straight forward job. Thank you for any info.

you know that Lehr is out of business and there is no parts support.

You could find whatever Chinese company made the powerhead and see if they have parts. That is nothing more than a 4 strk with a fancy fuel system.
