You test for compression?

not yet just got it home.. a general inspection shows the lack of timing belt covers.. i also started by turning it by hand. just to make sure the cam still rotated with the crank.. it did so i put power to it, it turned over and backfired once.. something just dosnt sound right with it building compression.. so yea a compression test is in order..

Kev I have a 16v head that may work for you - it was to replace the bad one on my B3, but it blew up before I could swap it. I have no idea on the condition other than it looks fine, and the seller (vortex) said it was good. It's yours if you can pick it up or arrange transport, I don't want to ship it.

Glad to see you with another rocco.
