Just done a set of compression tests on my Wife's 1330 prior to removing the lump to change the gearbox, so looking to see if I need to do anything else while it's out.
Done about 1200 miles since rebuild after rebore.
Cylinders 1 220. 2 205. 3 200. 4 235.
drop of oil added 1 235. 2 215. 3 230. 4 255.
I was trying to establish if the oil rings were not sealing as the engine puts out a puff of blue on occasion.
Do I have a headgasket problem between 2 & 3cylinders as they are down from 1 & 4?
Any comments would be welcome.
Evo 001 cam and MG Metro head plus HIF44 with BDL.
Engine warm, all plugs out, distributor lead off and throttle wide open.
