check for compression on the cylinders.

Ok how do we do that?

WITH A COMPRESSION TESTER. REMOVE THE SPARK PLUGS ON ALL THE CYLINDERS, PUT IN THE COMPRESSION TESTER IN THE FIRST CYLINDER HOLE WHERE PLUG WAS. SWING THE MOTOR FOR 3 SECONDS AND SEE WHATS THE READING. DO THIS TO ALL THE REMAINING CYLINDERS, OR YOU COULD TRY LEAK DOWN TEST-GOOGLE IT AND LOOK AT THE VIDEOS.

Thank you. I will see what happens.
