Just finished the compression test. #1 I redid a few times as I wasn't sure if I was fully seated or not. From #1-#4; 8, 45, 60, & 70. Also checked the distributor and the cap had some oil in it. I cleaned it out with a shop rag. Not looking good..

Im not sure how a piston could be stuck and have it run.
In my opinion, you should adjust the valves. You might be amazed at what that would do. If you have never done it, then its a good time to start.
I did mine with a .020" shim cold. Hot was .014" I think.
Its easy. If you dont know how to adjust them, ask and I will give you step by step.
After you adjust, leave the valve cover off and run it. You(or at least I can) can tell if there is something out of order such as a valve not closing properly. This post was edited by PretendFarmer at 11:47:04 11/26/12.
