Re: 8BA compression issues

Valve spring preload would be a factor if it's not long enough to firmly hold the valve on the seat.

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

The location of the plug gap looks pretty good. But that is a projected nose plug. I would go with a conventional nose plug and have the threads extend to the bottom of the head. I use n NGK BR7ES...

Re: M m oil

I'm sure MMO is not going to cause a problem in an engine. However, from my experience (over 60,000 miles on my engine) it is not needed. I have never used it in the oil or in the gas. Whatever trips...

Re: Failed Restart Ignition Resistor

I gave up on resistors and use resitance wire. Just have to figure out the length to get the right voltage.

Re: Starting on Idle

The hot engine tends to percolate fuel out the float bowl causing a rich condition and so more air is needed.

Re: Mercury crank

I've got over 60,000 miles on my engine and the oil pressure never drops below 30 lbs. 60 at startup. This is with a stock 8BA pump. The 10 lb stories are old history.
