    I use the seafoam and deep-creep. Let it soak overnight.
    Go to FAQ and follow steps.
    Run a compression test before and after.
    Please post if it helps raise the compression.

    P.S. With today's oil and fuel I don't think you need to do as often as the old days. Do as often as you wish.
