You HAVE to do your CR test over. Bring it up to operating temp. then pull all the plugs and block the throttle OPEN... Get someone to turn the engine over with the key and you hold the CR guage. Count 5 - 6 hits on the guage until the CR does not go up any more. Record your numbers on each cylinder and get back here with your results.. If you have a vaccum guage do that test also and record the number and if the needle is jumping arround on the guage and between what numbers is it moving arround..
Don't put ANY bux on the engine until you test the engine as much as you possibly can!!!! Very IMP... Where is Picton??? Get back with the numbers B 4 U do anything else...
