    ...Ive modified an old spark plug to perform a leak down test as well or instead of 332187A2-F28B-404D-AEC5-CAAE246C232F.jpeg a compression test,these ohv jobbies have a mechanical compression release that may be out of adjustment on the valves?

    I made a similar thing to hold the valves shut on the Ford CVH mill :confused:
    Worked well when doing the valve stem oil seals! Thought I was a genius :D

    I dont think these motors have an automatic decompressor, do they?
