Default Re: Against compression


You have hit on a subject that many do not realise.
Even the driving habits can affect the life of the high mileage motor, thus unbalancing the wear.
How many times have you heard a valve job done on a high-mileage motor only to have the bottom of the motor fail in a short time?

I'll bet that old motor once rebuilt will last a long time if machined straight and true.
