I checked my compression on my 45. I'm averaging ~35 on the front and ~43 on the rear. It dawned on me that when I had the head milled after a blown head gasket I raised the compression ratio. How much the shop took off precisely I don't know. The gasket surface was pocked with pits before they started and it came back smooth. Will the unbalanced compression cause any problems down the road and is that why I seem to be fouling the rear plug? (I'm using D-16 plugs and no intake leaks at this time) I've put 1000 miles on since the head was milled and It has ran fine.
