Compression Test?

6 posts in this topic

I want to do a compression test on a 94 70 H.P. Evin. Should the motor be warmed up before I do the test and how close should the test results for each cylinder be? Any info appreciated.
Thanks

I'm no mechanic, but I was having problems with my 60 hp Johnson this spring and when the mechanic did a compression check on mine it was 159# on one and 160# on the other. I would assume the motor should be warmed up, but someone else will probably answer that question.

cold or hot...doesn't matter because you're not after accuracy you're after precision.

The difference in compression of all cylinders is what is important to determine if something is wrong with one or more cylinders.

If all read low but equal(within 12 or 15 pounds), the engine is worn evenly, and as long as the compression of each is above 90# or so .....you should be OK.

To get the "actual" compression, the engine should be warmed to operating temp and the gage calibrated (most are not accurate). Throttle wide open so no restrictions and all plugs removed.

Also be sure to wait a few moments, and check for "bleeddown" of the cylinder before removing the compression tester from each cyclinder.

I've got than same engine. One cylinder was prone to run lean. I believe the middle. I'm pretty sure the VRO failed on mine(no alarm). Needless to say, I be premixin from now on. Hope ya get good results on that test! If not I had a mech do it on the side for me for around 1500.

        Alpha trout at head of feed lane. Maybe in fast broken water Subordinates all over hole but not close to alpha. Cast into top most part of fast funnel. Alpha waiting part way down the skinny feed funnel. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. When wading, wake control a large factor here. Stay out of water if you can. Make first cast count or will get only dinks in this hole.

      Bigger trout from area wintering at bottom of slow water near the fast water. Not in fast water. Subordinates chased out of hole by bigger trout. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. Cast into top of feed funnel and slow retrieve so presentation will get down to trout sitting on bottom just back from the end of the fast water.

      Trout extra wary on sunny no vegetation winter outing. Don't slap hole with line. Stay out of the water when attacking hole. Will be a one fish "only" hole due to water clarity and zero vegetation in hole. Any smart fish will spook when one is battled and drug through this clear non-vegetated hole.
    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.

    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
