I’ve done all the clean up and all the adjustments necessary to get a good reading on the health of the ’72 351C engine in my 1973 Mustang.
The next step is to check the compression.
First up was to warm the car a bit and then pull the plugs.
Here’s what the plugs looked like:
A very handy device to have is a remote starter (it keeps you from having to run back the cockpit and turning the key). Just clip on to the positive terminal and S terminal on the starter rely and push the button.
The left side Cylinders 1-4.
They shaped up like this:
1 – 130
2 – 25, 35, 60, 90 (Fail!!!)
3 – 140
4 – 135
Here are the videos:
No doubt cylinder #2 has some issue.
Other bank coming up in the next post.
Thanks for reading.
