Default Re: 8BA compression issues

The valve movement was exactly as described. When reassembling the top end, would it be ok to place one head on without the intake to assess the compression on that side ? I certainly hope that there will be a significant improvement, but would like to see some actual numbers before reassembling everything. As has been suggested, I do plan to do a preliminary check on the sealing of the intake valves by using a shop vac on the intakes. Since the engine is in the car with an exhaust system installed, i'm not sure about doing that test on the exhaust valves. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
