Anyone have the gear and some time to help me out with a compression test on my 2F FJ40?

I have noticed a lot of oil in the PCV and am wondering if I'm getting some blow-by. I'm thinking a compression test might be a good place to start?

Thanks in advance. :thumb:

I can't help you Martin, but I want to do the same with my 67 FJ40's F155 motor. Maybe we can get someone to help us both. At the same time even. :hill:

I have a compressor checker and of course would be happy to help, but I'm not near you anymore. :-/

Thanks for the offers to help guys!

Steve, since I know where you live, maybe Dan and I could head down there on the next nice day we have - My 40 is topless right now, and the forecast is snow this weekend. I'll be in touch soon. :thumb:

Thanks guys. As a soon as the weather warms up again, I'll be in touch. We just got a dumped on again this weekend.
