    Fuel not getting to all cylinders

    So I think my biggest issue is compression, so I think what I'm gonna do is take the head and get it shaved, and if that doesn’t work I’ll tear it back down and put on new rings. I really hope I don’t have to do that but it is what it is.

    I haven’t done it, and I dont think it’s ever been shaved.

    Just a thought, could getting the head shaved possibly help? Visually I couldn’t see anything wrong with the head, but maybe it could not be sealing right?

    I tried using some oil yesterday, and 3-4 did go up quite a bit, but not as high as the rest, though yesterday I was also doing the test with all the plugs in except for the one I was testing. Also the head gasket is brand new, though there could be a chance somethings not right with it. I’ll do like you said and try again. My uncle who used to own the truck came and tried to help me start it, but all we could get it to do is backfire.

    Okay so turns out I was doing my compression tests wrong, I didn’t know all the plugs were supposed to be removed. So the new numbers are as follows from 1-6. 70-70-50-50-70-60

    That’s the first time I’ve ever seen one of those, that’s really cool. Usually I just take some sand paper to them, but I’d say that would be a lot better.

    I don’t have a second set on hand and unfortunately I have to leave to go work for 12 days tomorrow so I’ll try it when I get back.

    I did it caus I just wanted to check again and make sure. Could the plugs be splash fouled if they’re brand new? I really appreciate your alls help by the way.

    I did not measure the bore or taper, while the head was off. There was a small ridge at the top of the cylinders, but my friend who knows way more about cars and engines than I do said it wasn’t bad at all. You could barely hook it with your finger nail. Also I just now poured some oil in the cylinders and the compression went way up to 180 then 150 then to around 120 for cylinders 1-2-5-6 3-4 went up to 120 then steadily down from there. I turned to distributor cap around to 180 degrees from where it was set too and a 5 inch flame shot out of the carb. Then engine smoked a lot more this time but most of all the smoke came from the oil and crank breathers than the exhaust.

    The valves were removed and lap sanded and given new springs, I’m not sure what you mean by what I did before removing the chain and gears. This is my first engine build so I’m still really new to this. I checked the timing and it’s sparking in the right patern TDC on the compression stroke.

    Okay so I did another check and 1-2-5-6 have 50psi and 3-4 have 40. When I say rebuild pretty much all I did was put a new timing set and replace all the gaskets. I didn’t put a ring kit in it because before the truck was parked my uncle said it had been rebuilt and the cylinders looked really good with minimal wear.

    I'll do another check tomorrow and see how it does. I really do feel like that reading may have been wrong, or it's gone up since I've been turning it over so much, I put my finger over one of the plug holes earlier and I couldn't keep my finger on it.

    The first test I did showed 30psi to all cylinders, but I believe it's gone up some since it's been cranked over so much lately. I need to do another test, but just haven't gotten around too it.

    As far as timing goes, the cam is in time because I put a whole new timing set on it and everything was aligned, and it sparks right on TDC.
