I think I just caught it at the start. I am sure if i keep running it there will be a big mech failure (worse than I have now).
on the contrary. You want to do a leakdown on a cylender With No or bad compression #'s to determin weither it is top end or bottom end. And were the compression loss is generating ie. Intake/exhaust/cooling system/oiling system/ or Cylender blow by.
