    Yes,after I was watching a paper that says difference of 25.My engine differences is only 4 psi.And what do you think about the compression ratio and compression pressure? I was looking for in various papers but did not find nothing.In B3-B driver's manual does not have.Years ago a mechanic I had said to me he found 120,110psi in this same IND-251.Why now it is only 90,80?

    Each cylinder average: cylinder nr 1 :86,25 cylinder nr 2: 77,5 cylinder nr 3: 82,5 cylinder nr 4: 85 cylinder nr 5: 77,5 cylinder nr 6: 82,5 Total average:86,25+77,5+82,5+85+77,5+82,5=491,25 491,25:6cy=81,9psi. Cylinders nr 2 and nr 5 are with valve leakage or other problems(worn rings).I do not know which is the correct compression ratio nor compression pressure for mine IND-251.
