Compression Test

Today I ran a compression test by connecting a PSI gauge into the spark plug holes. I turned the engine over by hooking up the battery from my car using jumper cables and touching the positive cable clamp to the starter. It turned over and I got my numbers! Here they are:

Piston No. 1: 0 PSI
Piston No. 2: 25-30 PSI
Piston No. 3: 30-35 PSI
Piston No. 4: 30-35 PSI

Looks like we'll need to do a little engine work...

Here is the RIVETING video of the engine turning over using the starter:
