Having a hard time coming up with a leak down tester. I was hoping I would not have to buy one....i did run a compression check though just to do it. One cylinder was 135, six were 140, and one was 145.

Jim had mentioned did I have the stock valve covers. I have a pair of chrome covers. They do have a baffle under the holes. Would the aftermarket covers be an issue? They were on the engine when i bought the boat.

Also should the dipstick have some type of rubber, oring, anything that would help seal the tube?

When cranking engine over (coil wire off), dipstick out, thumb over tube, i can feel small puffs of air. Should this be normal?
