  • '53 Ford Jube
  • Posted awhile back about "Rusty", the Jubilee missing on cylinder #1. Finally got to checking compression. Engine warm, throttle wide open, air cleaner hose unhooked.

    #1 - 20psi
    #2 - 110psi
    #3 - 115psi
    #4 - 115psi

    #1 - 50psi

    Houston we have a problem.

  • Remove the #1 spark plug and pour some Kroil down into the cylinder. Let is soak for several days and retest.

  • I agree, I would first hit it with a thinner penetrating oil WD40, ZEP, PB Blaster type oil, Then blow compressed air in the #1 cylinder using a rubber tip blow gun (Valves closed in neutral) This will help force the oil into the rings to help break up the rust, After all that then put a little heavier oil in and let it sit a few days.HTH

  • Tyman, I'm guessing that your Jube sits a lot since you primarily use your Boomer these days. Given the good compression on all the other cylinders, I would be suspicious of a stuck piston ring on #1.

  • Yeah, I don't use it much. About once a year. for a day. Spraying fence rows with roundup.

    I'll get some MMO and work on unsticking the rings on #1.
