Are you asking what a compression reading should be or the compression ratio? If you are troubleshooting then you should use a cylinder leak down tester. It tells you alot more about the engine.

I have a 1979 harley davidson ironhead sportster 1000 cc . I have had 3 condensors, 2 sets of points installed this riding season. What might be causing this issue ?


The '79 model came with electronic ignition and someone has converted it back to a points type ignition system. I'm betting that they did not change the coil. Check the resistance of the primary of the coil. It should be between 5-6 Ohms of resistance for use with points. A coil designed for use with an electronic igntion uses a coild with 2-3 ohms of resistance in the primary winding.

good luck

1982 harley davidson sportster XLH . Lost compression while riding . and it died. have electric but will not turn over or start. pistons not moving. gears work but there is not much resistance. . where do...


You need to tear the motor down, sounds as if the pistons seized or you broke a connecting rod, or bearings went out.

In any case you need to have someone that knows what they are doing check it out for you.

1985 harley 1000 no compression in front head


remove the push rod tubee on the front jug.see if the pushrods are moving up and down.see if they are loose.if loose adjust try again.
your valves may be stuck open if not stuck open pour 1 once of mystery oil in head try comp test again.[this is to check the rings}if still no comp you have a hole in your piston or blown head gasket
