YES I was able to complete a compression test today. All cylinders are about 80lbs.. This seems very low. What should it be?

Re: 41 Ford engine help

It is a 94. The accelerator pump was not working and so I rebuilt the carb tonight and did replace the power valve. I will put it back on the car later today. Fingers crossed.

Re: 41 Ford engine help

Hello,
It was not properly vented. I have fixed that but even with the gas cap off it did not change the issue.
