Default Re: 8BA compression issues

Fully, or partially stuck valves are pretty common on a flathead v8 that has sat for years. Both my 39 and 52 had zero compression on a few cylinders after a long rest and it took a little work to loosen them up before they would seat. Keeping the cylinders oiled is good but it won't get up to the valve area on a flathead.
