Well, glad I didnt get any parts yet... got in and did a compression test. Since everything was apart, I just did it cold... but thought it might at least give me a hint...

Well it did. Compression on 1,3,and 4 (cold - batt at 6.10volts at the start of testing - no oil dumped in the cyls because was just looking for dramatic differences) were in the 100-105 range. But that silly little cylinder #2... Nada.... nothing, zero, zilch... pulled the tester and stuck my hand over the hole, no air movement. Covered plug hole with finger, and nothing... not even the slightest feel of air moving.

So... we have deeper problems than just plug wires for now. Now have to see what Dad wants me to do...

Anything that commonly happens on these to give me and idea what I might find if he elects to have me dig deep?

Was planning on pulling valve/tappet covers, and look for anything not moving or obviously broken (valve, etc), then on to pulling the hood if nothing appearing to be wrong under the valve/tappet covers, and the flashlight look in the plug hole test :D... and then pull the head... and then..... and then.....

Guess we'll see what he wants me to do. He's got A LOT of goodie out of this critter in the last 40 years... so not sure what he will do.

Cheers and Thanks!
