Note to Self

Just as a note to myself, next time I buy anything used with a motor in it I will check the compression. I found out last weekend after doing a compression test that my #1 cylinder has no compression. I hope that it is something simple such as a bad valve or head gasket. If the piston has a hole it in, is it possible to change it out without pulling the motor? I was told that it is possible by a few people then told that I need to pull the motor if the piston has a hole in it. I am going to try to find the problem this weekend.

As long as you can get the oil pan off, you should be able to change it. I would say the chance of it having a hole in one piston, but the rest of the motor being in tip-top shape is slim. You may want to start planning on doing the whole thing, even if you slap a piston in it to get you by for a while. All that said, it's probably a valve.

Well I appreciate the advice. I hope that is it, simple fix and may be able to drive it more than on the driveway. I am ready to hit the mud/trails.

Does anyone know of a good shop around Houston/ Beaumont to get my cylinder heads rebuilt or does anyone have a set of 350 TBI heads that have been rebuilt for sale?
