Not a bad shout. Camshafts already out.

Where would I get the kit to do a leak down test? I donít have a compressor but could buy one

Yeah. A leak down test is usually done with compressed air, but I just wondered if there was any value in an overnight fluid loss type test

How about taking the camshafts out, putting the CH back on the block using the old gasket and bolts, and doing a proper leak down test? There is a big difference between 200psi+ air and fuel/oil/white spirit and gravity. Plus fuel/white spirit will end up in the sump.

Well it isnít the valves. Sealed tight on no3.

Mark said rings are unlikely given the absence of oil burning

So I guess it points to....  :-X

Would such a crack be visible in the bore with the piston out?

Iím not against the idea of removing the pistons now Iíve come this far :y

Sounded pretty mediocre to me, but each to their own.

What do I leave myself wide open to, and, why have you quoted the rules for the for sale sections in your reply?

I'm not trying to sell anything  :-\
Where have I quoted selling rules? :-\
Ahhhh....I see. Sorry, James, I have obviously copied stuff previously and, for some reason, itís pasted itself there. Please ignore my nonsense. The thread where all of this crap was originally pasted has been deleted by one of the mods. Apologies.

Good good. So whatís causing the low compression in no3  :D
One of three things: Piston rings, valves or crack in the block. :y

No need to thank me, thank google  ;D

Sky news has been giving almost constant coverage of Dolores watsernames death for days on end. Culminating in the funeral today.
Their on the scene reporter felt obliged to inform us every few minutes that she had been a global superstar for the last 25 years.
I'm probably completely out of touch, but to my knowledge she sung in a band that had a couple of relatively minor hits about 25 years ago.  ???
They were huge in America, and quite rightly so. One of the few groups whose songs were great musically, and the lyrics told a story (even if personal to the singer)

Hopefully TB's cull list will weed out the highly paid 'unproductives' :)

You are starting to sound like Pol Pot!  :o   ::)   :P

Maybe rather than culling such folk we could send them for re-education, so that they become productive members of society?  :-\

Teach them how to harvest cabbages, drive a tractor or weave cloth or something?  ::)

To tell the honest truth, my new meds don't seem to be having the desired effect.  :-[

Always best to hold your hands up and be honest in these situations.  :y
