    Question Engine Work

    Well.. bad news. Just bought compression tester this past week and found out that i have 20 P.S.I on PTO side and about 8 P.S.I on mag side.. not really sure what went wrong but i figured id ask for your guys opinions of what the He11 i should do.. its either a Reman Engine from SBT or take sh1t apart and figure out if i should fix whatever went wrong in the engine. SBT engines are only about 800 shipped.. Anyway.. Does anyone have any ideas of what the heck would make compression be THAT low!!?? AND UNEVEN..?

    I am in NJ. On the shore in Ocean county.

    Lets see some tare down pictures and see what you are dealing with. 20 and 8 when you should be 125+ isnt a good sign. Like he said above, dont spend any money yet lol.
