not really looking forward to it, but , im thinkin it needs to be done... im gonna do a pressure test before i tear everything down, so i figured i would ask if anyone can tell me what the cylinder pressure is supposed to be? i will be picking up a manual before i do anything... would rather do it myself than pay someone alot more to do it for me..... i've never done cast iron heads before, am i going to need to resuface them?

Commerce City, CO... About 20% off the minimum spec gives you a min compression specification of 80psi. Doesn't give a normal number in the FSM.

Shouldn't have to resurface heads. Just clean them off. Where most people screw it up is torquing the heads down. FSM says first step to 50 and second to 105 ft lbs. Definitely one of the higher specifications I've seen.
