Well , I wanted a project bike,well be careful what you wish for. I was deciding before painting this bike if I should pull the motor to get the frame real good , and do a good job. Before I did, a wanted to check the compression to see if it's even necessary. I did the compression check, and got 155 in 3 cylinders, and 130 in number 4cyl.. Well, clearly a problem somewhere. Next I shot the 130 cylinder with oil, and I got 150 real easy for about 3 more tests. So I feel it's a ring problem, because once and a while the left bank will smoke, and then just stop, I'm like what's going on, maybe sticking rings. I wonder if I should pull the head to look in there, or maybe the rings will unstick, but I'd like to know something, so I know which direction to go with this build up.
