Compression test results
This is my first time posting, I've searched for and read many posts about compression checks on this board, but none of those people'* results seemed as varied as mine.
My engine recently stopped running and now won't start, when I pulled the plugs, #1,3,5 were extremely wet, it looked like antifreeze, leading me to think I am another victim of a bad UIM. I changed the #1,3,5 head gasket a few months ago and I noticed the area on the UIM around the stove pipe was all ashy, but I put it back together anyway.
I am trying to figure out if my short block is trashed, or if a wet test doesn't change these readings that I may get away with just changing the UIM and the heads, or what would happen if all I change is the UIM? My cylinder readings vary by almost 64% from 3&4 to #5, what are the chances #5 has broken rings, or could it be ruined valves? Will the wet test rule out broken rings? I would be fine with replacing the heads, but I would love to not to have to touch the short block.
I ran out of daylight to do a wet test, but here are my dry test results.
#1 - 120
#2 - 140
#3 - 170
#4 - 170
#5 - 110
#6 - 130
Thanks for any advice.
