unfortunately, no....still running very hot....

We did reset the guage between cylinders..
Then we squirted a little oil in each cylinder and the compression readings went up to about 130-135 per cylinder - I know this may mean that the rings aren't seated correctly - would this happen on a fresh rebuild, and the rings still breaking in?
