That's a good idea. I'll look into getting the cylinder head/valves done there. As for the tear down, I'd like to clean everything up and baby things as I go.

You are probably spot-on. I re-did the test and put 10mL oil in each cylinder just before running the compressions.

4 = 180

The valance had hardly any black residue around the exhaust tips, and it was dusty, not greasy. The tips may protrude too far out to lend any significant collection of exhaust debris? Dunno.

Also good advice, thanks. There was only ~3000 miles since the last change, so I wasn't too worried about it. I've heard oil can go for what, 5-10K miles these days?? 4000 would be pushing it for me.

I'm sorry, I wasn't clear.. didn't mean that the plug was out all last night. Was wondering if letting the oil drain overnight, in general, was bad practice. Particularly in cold/changing weather.
