Thanks Justin. I feel the same way.
all the other cylinders were showing only 20% leakage (into the crankcase). A bit high I would consider for a new rebuild, but it was a "dry cylinder" leak-down test and I would think that the new forged piston have not fully broken in yet.
I am also to understand that forged pistons tend to be a tiny bit sloppy when cold and will expand ever so slightly once operation temperatures are reached.
Cylinder Head won't be coming off til September I imagine, as i am in the middle of a move and booked out for weeks at the shop fixing the pay-peoples' broken German automotives.
poor 85'T will have to wait. I will be back with updates when she lives again!
