Put back ur engine, secure ur glow plug... turn the flywheel... if u still feel strong re-bounce mean engine still got compression... if no, mean compression lost... dun mix up compression n pinch!

Why not send your cylinder sleeve to Rays for
a pinch. Include the piston with the rod still
attached when you send it in for repair. The
process doesn't cost much and will restore
the compression for many more gallons of run
time.

if less pinch, then get the sleeve pinched. definitely extends life, and its cost effective. but its still 50-50 chance of getting it like new, sometimes one can get unstable running temperature. just my 2 cents
