    OK, I have a dumb Question. If your timing is off will it affect
    your compression. Mine is low (about 120lbs in cyl 1&3 )I did not check the others and I know my timing is off but I don't see how it could change it that much If at all. Any input

    I also thought I would add that the oil pressure is jumping,the lifters are tapping,and every once and a while I get a healthy
    backfire through the carb
    HEY Fords!!! how many flushes does it
    take to get rid of you<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Redfrog on 06/24/01 01:11 AM (server time).</FONT></P>

    no it will not affect the compression if your distributor timing is off. Now if the cam timing was off, then you'd have trouble.
