Hi,
My name is ***** ***** I hope to help with your problem.
How did you check the compression? Did you hold the throttle wide open when cranking? It should be well over 100psi.
You described the work don't to the bottom end but what have you don't to the top end? Low compression suggests a top end fault.
Just answer only pay us on your rating, anything less than good is considered a failure so I hooe my help so far hasn't failed you.
Best regards

Hi

it made no difference, throttle open or off, I have ordered a new top set it will be here today. Originally I only rebuilt the bottom end as the variater outerflange had damaged the crank. The engine was running ok up till then.
