Ok - just did compression test.
1 - 130
2 - 115
3 - 120
4 - 180
the book says that 114 is the minimum, average should be 142-199, but the maximum variation should be <28. how bad is that?
i did not check if it was rings or valves. maybe i should somehow reduce the compression in cyl. #4 so the variation is ok
also, i got a decent digital multimeter today, and the coils are as follows:
average = 2.4 - 3.2 (ohms) primary resistance
both came in at 3.4 ohms
average = 30,000-40,000 secondary resistance
both came in at 15,000 ohms
my question is this: with the results of the compression test, should i try to fix the ignition system and get it running, or should i forget about it all together? should i test if it is valves or rings and then try maybe some ring-seal?
i got the entire bike in this condition, by the way, so i really don't know too much history about why or how everything came to be.
thanks a ton for your support and advice
