Re: Are jet sizes proportional to engine size?

Not always, a compression test can still show good numbers with worn valve guides. The recommended clearances of the valve stem to guide isn't very much. When the valve guides do get to a serverly worn state then yes it will show up in a compression test. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:
