    What was the compression reading dry and 'wet' (put a teaspoon of oil in cyl. before 2nd try)?What did the spark plug have evidence of , gas or oil foul?

    thanks for the info. a mechanic will do a compression check on all cyclinders on monday. earlier mechanic did not give me specifics, just low compression on no. 2 with a leak down check showing bad exhaust valve.. already had new plugs, wires, and coil installed.. Ed
