My apologies with the thread, I actually thought I started a new one... not sure what happened there...?
(sometimes I just do too many things at once on the comp... lol)

When I did the compression test, the gage was installed in one cylinder, and the other two plugs were loose. I did not give any gas, I just clutched in and rolled the engine 5-6 times... engine was warm, but not running temp.
Should I redo the tests, with the engine at operating temps, and the gas peddle depressed? I found it odd that they seemed low, but they were all equally low...

Thanks for the vacuum info... I will try to maintain a 5-7in vac and see what happens as I do not have a SG.

Mods: Pls move this thread as required, thanks (and sorry)
