      The mechanic that did all the machine work to the engine. I took it back to him once I got it all together to look it over. "Double check" my work. I called him later that day to see how everything...

      long and short here, I re-installed my dual carbs after installing the engine and was told that the drivers side intake was leaking. I was also told it will damage the pistons to drive it this way....

      Would you agree that loose heads would have had the same results as running carbs too rich? I agree with picking up new head studs, and I plan to...

      UPDATE: So I finally got around to doing the leak down test and sure enough, number 3 was low. about 40%. I didn't even bother checking the rest since I was going to pull the engine anyway. As best...

      #3 cylinder seems to be the one that has the most issue with burnt valves, from what I have read. I don't think there is a quick fix for that except to replace it. Not that that is always the case,...

      TRIP-- I did the valve adjustment right before the compression test and then did it all again to make sure I had everything right once the numbers came back. Thanks for the info on the 88's. I will...

      Thanks Buggyman. I wasn't thinking along the lines of valve train geometry being an issue at all, so I am glad you pointed that out. I would hate to go through all that work just to find myself down...

      Thanks for the reply. I don't have time this week but when I get a chance, I will do a leak down test. Assuming it is just a valve that is bad, would it be best to still replace pistons and barrels...

      I agree with Loosenuts here. $25.00 is the cost of some pizza, so no big loss if it is a paper weight.;) Give it a shot and, who knows, maybe you will get lucky and have a runner. :thumbup:
