  1. Hi, Thanks for the help, I did a compression test this morning and got number 1 185 psi, 2 60 psi, 3 175 psi and 4 170 psi. This on an engine which hasn't started since 1990. I took a chance and poured some fuel in and the engine started. I reassembled the carbs, restarted and ran for about 3 minutes. When I turned it off the engine ran on for about 10 seconds, this could be due to the high compression or because there was no water. I'll re check the compression figures when it has cooled down. Regards Andrew P.S The engine had 60 psi of oil pressure while cranking.
  2. Thanks Rod it looks like it has had a 147thou head skim!
  3. Hi, Following on from my earlier question; I have striped my engine further and found 120thou shims under the rocker pedestals, the head to block thickness is 3" 258thou and approx 3" 183 for the head its self. The valves are have 312/ 1000, the head also has an alloy plug stamped USS and I have found N59 cast near number 4 cylinder. I would appreciate peoples thoughts on the head thickness and pedestal shims. Regards Andrew
