Ok guys and gals. Im sick to my stomach since last night when my paint and body guy called me up and said that his friend who is a mechanic (backyard) said that he tested the compression in my pistons and was only getting 155 to 160 per. He said that they should be doing 240-260(I cant remember which). He recommended me to buy new pistons and rings and bore out the cylinders to get the compression back to where it should be.
He said that a way he does to test it is to drop and very small drop of oil on the top and that re-seals the rings for a few minutes. He said that when he did that it ran like it was BRAND NEW AGAIN.
My question is this..... Is this something that HAS to be done?
Is there any other alternative?
Does ANYONE on here know where I can get
pistons and rings for under 200?
Just what are my options?
PLEASE HELP!!!: My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
