Hello !

Ive got a problem: engine is Ford thames trader I guess around 1960's
6-cyl 6-liter 108 hp. Is the model 510E ?


Im whondering where I could find the real value of the compression pressure of cylinders ?

I know the manual says 16:1 but what is the real values in psi or bars ?

I measured my engine pressure crancing with starter motor and got readings of 260-280 psi or 18-20 bars


Get excessive black smoke and no power while under load...and almost everything else is already done..


Cheers, Mika
