Re: Low cylinder compression
Since the lifters are loud they are probably too loose. Them being too tight would cause low compression though.
Maybe you could to some type of leak down test, see how long they are holding the 120, also check the 150 cyl's. If it is a bad head gskt they shouldn't hold press too long.
It sure sucks to have to tear apart an engine right after you build it! been there done that, don't want to do it again!
