Re: Wierd compression

Sounds like you checked all of the normal things. You don't say but did you check the pistons and rings? Maybe stuck rings or collapsed ring lands from the back fire? Hard to believe it would happen...

Re: Clutch restauration, some questions

Werner, I was referring to picture #4 in post 24. Maybe I am missing it but it appears to me that the clutch fork for the throwout bearing is down to far? maybe I'm delusional.

Re: Vacuum testing to diagnose fast idle

if you had a intake or carb gasket leak you would have low vacuum. Altho you have a pulsating vacuum reading it is not that low (15-19).

Trust what the vacuum gauge is telling you. With #2 low in...
