Re: Compression Spec.s on a 258?
Great, that means I'm good to go, then. The cylinders are all 120 on the first revolution of the engine, and bump up to 150+ psi on the second crank. I replaced the timing gears and chain, fixed the air/fuel mixture screws, and it runs like a dream now!
The only problem left is the lifters (I think) are clacking rather loudly at times. . . I don't think there is anything I can do about this short of a rebuild, though, and I don't have the resources for that now. Anyone have a suggestion on other stuff to check before the big trip?
