I pulled the valve cover off the Fiat. It doesn't look very great. I then put some compressed air in the cylinder that was on the compression stroke and nothing happened. Little to no hissing either. So the engine is stuck. Looks like it will be put on hold until I get farther on the civic and other projects. I will keep my eye out for some new (second hand) tires though so I can put it back on the ground and off the dollies. Once I get some practice replacing windshields I will pull this one off and re-seal it. The front is leaking so I threw a large tarp over the car for now.
