I recently had a compression
test done on my engine
, a westerbeke
46. The compression
came back within a wide range. #2 had a 520 and #4 had a 445. The engine
starts up immediately and runs fine, except for some overheating
caused by a cascade of cooling
issues, which is being fixed.
This was a cold test. I have heard rumors that the westerbeke
normally has wide compression ranges before warming up... is this true?
Anyone have experience with the engine in this regard - is it anything I should really worry about? I wish I had the previous engine results because it would be nice to know if there is a trend or if the engine has always had these compression issues.
