    hello carefully inspect the shift rod. compression should all be within about 10 psi from bank to bank. look it over carefully for signs of shoddy repairs and corrosion. good luck and keep posting

    look for any signs of service and ask for service records. spend $50 and get a mobile to mechanic to inspect it for you.

    What should the compression numbers be?? The guy just told me he had it checked, and that 5 have 130 psi and one is at 100 psi??Should I run from this boat & Motor?? Or do you think the motor can be saved with this info?Thanks again

    I have a 225 from the same year. Definitely check for corrosion, but also it should have had new thermostats & water pump and a carb rebuild at least once in its life....

    that motor is blown or severly neglected. run,run away. a 30 psi spread is very very bad. good luck and keep postingPS if you really want to know the condition of the cylinder sealing have a leak down test done. its much more accurate than compression.
