    1987 d-50 2.6 another issue

    Well folks if you have been following Ive got a great clean 4x4 but have had several issue that you all have helped me with. Well I need your help again Ive messing with the timing and can not get it dialed in. I decided to do a compression test and found #1 cylinder has no pressure. Thoughts on where to go from here would be appreciated.

    Thanks again
    Brian

    I would take the valve cover off and check that the valves, rockers, and springs are all in one piece and opening and closing fully. You can also blast some compressed air down the spark plug hole at tdc and listen where the air is escaping. Could just be a stuck valve. If no obvious issue there it's going to be a head off job to find it
