That made you look didnt it :wink:

I have 20psi compression in cylinder number 2 :lol:

I am now running on 5 cylinders, but as number 2 does still fire still I call it 5 and 1/2 cylinders and the car does go pretty darn well depsite all this, although I have everything adjusted wrong enough to compensate *sigh*

So I am looking for a replacement head (I am in Mlebourne) *help* :cry:

I highly doubt its rings, as all other cylinders are at around 140+psi which is normal.

Yeah, probably right, have you done a wet and dry compression test? this definetly rules out rings, stick some oil in there after dry test, if compression goes up, its rings.

How much oil do I put in down the plug hole ?

I will also add test was done with all plugs removed to elimante gasket blown between cylinders.

Bugger all, you only want enough to seal around the rings, so 30 ml at most, dont mattewr if to much goes in, will blow out any way.
