Re: Compression Test Results

Alright, update on the situation. I gave it a pretty thorough Seafoam treatment and that seemed to help a little. It wasn't missing driving it in second gear down my little road like it did...

Re: Compression Test Results

Yes, WOT. Poured some Seafoam into the gas. Hopefully that helps. Will idle it and maybe try again today.

Re: Compression Test Results

I forgot to have the other plugs out as I did the compression test. Re-did it and the results are slightly better, but still low: 46/44/36/46. Sorry about that. I guess overhaul of some kind...

Re: Compression Test Results

The car wasn't running so well when I put it away. I may need to try some of the Seaform type stuff in the fuel. Pretty sure I have a can sitting around.

Re: Compression Test Results

I drained out the old gas and cleaned out the carb and made sure everything was clear and didn't have any blockages. I have a 6 volt coil with a new 6 volt battery. For the coil, the side marked...

Compression Test Results
