    Compression question

    Is it true that you can't really get an accurate compression reading with cv carbs because of the vacuum slides?

    That is a bit of an urban myth x2. CV carbs do not need to be removed to do a compression check but the throttle needs to be fully opened.
    A CV carb with the throttle open will flow enough air to fill the combustion chamber with enough air to get an accurate reading.
    It’s a good idea to shut off the fuel and drain the float bowls beforehand.
