Is it "okay enough" to use two head gaskets to raise head and relieve too much compression on probably twice shaved head already installed?
Appreciate any comments about potential of this simple maybe easy fix.
Please don't be shy.
In the process of rebuilding the engine for our 102, we had pistons made that are 9 to 1 compression which was the highest Venolia could make for us, but we would really like to get to 9.5 to 1 if we can.
Next thought is to shave the head a bit. Does anyone know how much can safely be...
New to the board and Alfas. Picked up a 1986 Graduate in Eugene, OR, running on three cylinders and the compression check showed cyls 1-4 to be at: 50/160/160/160.
Is this catastrophic? Any ideas on what could be the cause? out-of-adjustment/stuck intake valve?
