I have started to strip down the 6.
As I have a few bits to do and it just isn't feasible to drive and mod at the same time.
So first I thoughtI would do a compression check on the the cylinders to see if there might be any problems lurking as there has been a bit of smoke recently.Which I have been putting down to the valve stem seals.Also by the state of the plugs there has been a bit of overfueling.
So anyone know the compression rate for the ze? And what varyation should be considered unexceptable between cylinders? I did one check dry and one with a bit of oil down the cylinder.
On #5 cyl I couldnt see if the oil went in the hole so I might of put a extra squirt down the hole.So when there was such a difference I spun the engine with the tester out and rechecked but still got 250 psi.
#1 cyl. 209 psi____230psi
#2 cyl. 230 psi____245psi
#3 cyl. 220 psi____238psi
#4 cyl. 230 psi____245psi
#5 cyl. 220 psi____250psi
#6 cyl. 212 psi____228psi
Any and all input welcome.And will probably have a lot more questions yet.As I want to sort it all out as I go along.I am planning on pulling the whole engine and give it all a good clean.Strip off the heads for a bit of work as well.So any tips or suggestions send them my way.lol.
Thanks in advance....
