No, I don't. Yes it ran 300PSI on all cylinders back during the summer. The cylinders looked good when I had it apart, no scoring, very little ridge.

I'm very puzzled by the whole thing. The engine, even with high compression numbers used scads of oil. The possibility exists that she let it get to low on oil. But I really don't think so. I watched closely all the time, and she was very dilligent in keeping oil in the motor. If it had run low of oil which caused the decline, I would think that the cylinders would have shown that.

The engine still does not jump to life like it did before the sudden hard start fiasco. I suspect that there is something else here other than compression, but have been unable to put my finger on it.

Thanks for the responses,
