Looked over at SSExi as I hopped in to the truck to go to work. She'* all ready, just need to find time to go over the tune before I start driving her more.

worked on my friends 94 camaro today the tranny is out and we are trying to get her to run again, theres no compression its kind of a mess right now.. heres what it looked like back when he was in highschool



then tomorrow going to get my new tensioner put on my buick and then back to his place to work on the camaro some more and hopefully get it started and he wants me to paint it for him on the weekends or whenever i get to it while hes back and forth to ohio. We are also pulling out the 91 lemans to get running again for the races. Which reminds me if anyone in michigan has a junker car THAT RUNS they wouldnt mind selling me for really cheap let me know asap.

What you mean no compression, like none at all on any cylinder? No compression generally means your pulling the heads.

The main pulley is the harmonic balancer. No compression is a blow head gasket if the cylinders with zero are next to each other. If not, then it could be a dropped valve.
