Results of compression Test. (heated engine of course - just a dry test also)
First checked the timing belts, all ok. Left as stated initially is just a fraction out, less than 1/4 tooth. Not much I can do about that without vernier pulleys.
180 psi on every cylinder.
This is with JUST 9 kms on the clock, not even broken in yet. Haven't had the chance the take it out and push it a little yet on the open road.
There was a little, just occasional back fire/spitting through the carbs while warming up but disappeared once it got up to temp .And the odd misfire when I let off the accelerator quickly.
Do I need to be concerned about this backfire/spitting? To add the fuel has been sitting in the tank for 2 months, maybe a little 'off' with a low octane level causing the spitting.
I think with 180 psi the valves and rings are seating ok no?
