old said: (quoted from post at 13:05:41 12/11/12) E-Bay and compression gauge why not buy local as in from an auto parts store?? Shoot some will rent you one and the real cost is you buy it and then you bring it back and get your $$ back.
That said it could be as simple as sticking rings or carbon build up. I would put say a 1/4 cup of ATF in each cylinder and let it sit a day then run it and after getting it warm do another compression check and I will almost bet them numbers come up a good bit
After seeing all the posts on here about soaking in ATF that was my thought it's been soaking for 3 days now. I don't need to use it for a while so I'm gonna go out and add some more ( when it warms up a little it was 24 degrees this morning ). When I go to start it up should I leave the plugs out and turn it over to blow ATF out or just start it and let it smoke.
