1st question.......Now that you said you re-set the floats to 1/4", and IF you did not bend the floats from side to side, JMHO....the float level will NOT be any big factor, going up, down, or side hilling, UNLESS you don't use the "N" with common sence on too steep a hil!!!! THEN, you would have a roll-over situation, and NOT be worrying about the fuel level!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: :shock:
2nd. question...... You now have to do another compression test, because you did the first one with an "ICE COLD" engine.

again......the FO-4 Manual, tells you how to do a compression test....engine at operating temp....., and also tells you what the min. compression should be!!!!

AND, what may be any problems with the test report. (LOW Compression #s...etc)

If you have an up-dated FO-4......152pages......go to page 25, paragraf 22,....for the proper compression testing.

If you have the older will have to look it up in the books index, to find out where to read up on it.

Hope this does not tic ya off......if it does I can always, stop trying to help ya!!! :)

Not an athority on being a mech., here, just trying to give ya some info., to help out!!!
Given, that the #'s were done, with the engine stone cold, with no lube/very little lube on the rings,....JMHO, is that with the exception of the 75lbs on #1 cyl, those #'s would be acceptable to run, but NOT up to spec's.!!!

With that said,....I am thinking that a compression test taken, when engine is up to running temp., and with a little lube on the rings and valves, yer #'s will come up conciderably, .....( the #'s Just MAY come up, to very acceptable levels, and NOT be below the 'minimum acceptable limit' OF 90psi. per cyl.!!!)

Hope that you will receive your manual soon, as most of the info you will need, is in that manual!!!!

Let us know if you need more info, before it gets there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Be glad to help you, if I can!!!!

Good luck with your endevores!!!

Have an "N" day!!!!

Gary :wink:
