    How did you measure the compression?

    Should be measured with both spark plugs out, throttle help wide open.

    50 and 80 PSI are very low numbers. Typical compression numbers, using an accurate gauge, are around 120PSI or higher.

    Just as important, the PSI numbers on each cylinder should be within 5% of each other.
