At 250k, I'd smile if you have good compression and fresh chains/guides/tensioners. Cant go wrong with freshening that end of the motor up BEFORE catastrophe.

I bet a little low, probably due for a valve job, but if she isn't smoking maybe it'll last a while

I'd like to see some #'s just for the heck of it

you can get a decent screw-in compression tested at Advance for about $25

but I think it would be near impossible to screw it down the spark plug opening and get a good seat on the o-ring

Hey guys,sorry it has taken so long. I have barley had time to do site votes in the last month.I have had to days off in three weeks but on one of those days i had Tim "racin bud from down the street" check compression on Big Green. All 8 Cylinders were around 150 Lbs he used computer engine analyzer.

yes
look up Advance Auto, they got a compression tester for about $28
comes with all the different adaptors

1
Remove the plug wire from one of the cylinders. If you can't pull it off by hand, use the spark plug wire pliers. Pull the coil wire off the coil tower. Work the cylinders in order, so you don't forget which ones you've checked. Remove the spark plug, using the spark plug socket.

2
Screw the compression gauge into the spark plug hole. Press the button the side of the gauge to make sure the gauge is zeroed out. Have a helper crank the engine over five times. Write down the compression, which is measure in p.s.i.

3
Repeat for the rest of the cylinders; then Reinstall the plugs and the wires

make sure the o-ring seats but dont over tighten it
do not push gas pedal
do them all before you put the plugs back in makes it easier on the battery
and will prevent a possible fouled plug

now there are other things to do to figuer out if you have a bad valve or bad rings
you need to look that up
as I cant remember the sequence
