I'm not trying to determine the source of the misfire. Its plainly obvious in this case, very low compression, most likely from a worn out head. What i'm looking
for is a product or quick fix to get the compression up solely to get a tag for this year. I know its a long shot, but there sure is a lot of products on the shelf claiming to rejuvenate a worn engine. But honestly I dont see how any of those could work for problems in the top end.
