Know that U are going to think that we are Crazy, BUT the mech.[Who is '1' of them OLD TIME mech.
& he did go back into eng., Just to be sure, Yes Everything was where it was suppose to be [clearances were @ factory spec.S & all valves checked OK 'vacuum] when he did compression test [before was reading from 110 - 100Lbs & yes we know that it takes ATLEAST 90Lbs to crank a cyl.]
Mech. Did find that the EGR valve was STICKING, he 1st tried w/out mounting EGR, won't work w/out the EGR valve, BUT said that he re-mounted EGR valve & [somehow] he was able to blockoff EGR valve [within it's self], Re-bolted EGR valve & Yes the eng. Did run & Re-checked Compression, didn't tell me what he got when did next Compression Test, BUT did tell me that [after blocking off EGR eng. Ran like a top & that is the only thing that he did] NOW, we know that this doesn't make any sense & goes against everything most experts think BUT this mech. Is a can't think of a GOOD word to use , BUT Promise U that if there is a way to make eng. Run [usually against all logics] Phil is the mech.
