To test the compression of the engine, use a good screw in type compression gauge. Hold the throttle wide open and rotate the engine through six or seven compression strokes.

The manual says, "If the final readings are 90 psi or more and if the final readings do not indicate more than a 10% variance between cylinders, compression is considered normal".

Do a "wet" compression test as well by squirting 1/2 ounce of oil into each cylinder and redo the test. If the compression comes up considerably, a top end rebuild is probably in order.

At 8.5:1 compression ratio, 120 psi max.

Good Luck
