I have a 58 Austin Healey 100-6. I did a compression check: all cylinders at 150 psi except #1=30 psi. I just discovered this yesterday, so haven't checked it out yet. If the valve itself is stuck, how do I "unstick" it?

Thanks for any ideas.

Bob

It looks like you posted this in the classified section. You'll get more response if you move it to the normal Austin Healey forum.

I'd imagine you're going to need to pull the head off to fix it properly. You've also got to figure out what allowed it to happen. Broken spring and/or guide?
