Thread: Compression problems!!!!
05-11-2008, 08:48 PM #1
Ok i am getting to the last string.......... I have 34cc heads with 135 PSI. Why so low? No problems, used snap-on compression tester with the right adapter. Held throttle open, grounded plugs, took all the plugs out, and also did it with taking one plug out at a time. Very small difference in reading. Please help. Here are pics on the cyl and head. Lines in the cyl are just marks. Felt them and they are smooth and not scorn.
Engine ran on stand (on hose) only. Haven't got it in the water yet.

number 3 was replaced by previous owner. I rejetted it and also reset the high and low screws and am going to tune it when i can get it in the water. I dont know how much the exhaust ports have been raised. All the work was done by the previous owner and he didnt give me anything to work from. If someone knew the stock height i can measure it and tell you how much it was raised.

I think stock height is around 38 ish. porting drops compression, so domes that make 150psi on a stock motor will make less on a ported one.

I wouldn't worry about the compression numbers you have as long as you know it's ported.
Bull cranked out some similiar numbers with his TJ ported 1200.
