560/117 Compression values?

1986 560SEL

Anyone know decent compression values offhand? I seem to have misplaced my service CD and I figure they're probably on there. I plan on checking this later in the day and would like to have a reference point to go by.
The car was suspected to have overheated to the point where the engine shut off... I was told it was seized, but it turns fairly well on its own and sputters but will not catch and run longer than a few seconds.

The important criteria in compression is similarity. There shouldn't be more than 10-20% difference between cylinders. My gauge usually reads 180 or so, with the throttle open and a GOOD battery.
