Compression test results?

Postby BYY922 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 7:57 pm

I’ve just carried out a compression test on my ‘35 14. 1-5 recorded 130 psi and no.6-135 psi. Whilst they’re nice an consistent, I want to know what the bmep is supposed to be as per the factory spec?
Additionally, the plugs (Accuspark AC9CR) are oiling and sooty even though mixture and timing are correct so I suspect they may be too cold, your comments please as to good heat range/make of plug?
Im getting a big plume of smoke after idling or restarting hot so my guess is valve guides?
