Re: stock compression
What 4x4_Austin_Mini said. Proper procedure for compression testing is all plugs out, throttle at wide open
so there is no impediment to spinning the motor. check you valve lash, it could be too tight.
If that doesn't improve things squirt a few pumps of motor oil in each cyl and see if it comes up.
If it does, its loseing it at the rings. If it doesnt then its at the valves.
