    Thanks for the info everyone. I can't say I have a solid game plan at the present but that's what I'm trying to develop now. I'll at least try to explain how I think I wanted to approach things.

    Checked compression last night on the engine. 90 psi, 5, 75, and 90 when "dry". Added oil and the 5 went to 10 and the 75 went to 85. Looks like engine work is in my immediate future.

    Not sure what happened here. I would have sworn that I updated everyone on my progress between 8/26 and now (9/21). But it looks like whatever was here was lost.
