Re;As long as the compression readings were taken with the spark advance lever at full retard and all

I think you meant throttle and if you didn't, spark has nothing to do with checking compression.



Re the oil; depending on the history of the car, could someone got carried away with the solvable oil or block sealer? The inside of the block in now coated and is getting washed out. One of my Uncles must have added a lot of it (block sealer) to my 48 in the past, the inside of the radiator neck is really greasy oily sometimes.
