    What is the satisfactory range of pressure for a 350 SB. The motor I am looking at is a 91 TBI with 134K. Thanks for your input.

    Git there fastest with the mostest!

    You should be around 150psi with a maximum variance of 20psi.

  3. now is that for a brand new motor. i always thought it was more important- on a used motor -that all the cyclinders were showing the same compression (with in the range you stated). this way at least you would know things are wearing evenly and there are no dead cylinders. some of my used mills have shone 110-125 across the board and ran fine.
