Engine compression check
Hello everyone,
I want to perform a compression test on my 351 C and I have a few questions about.
I did already on cars but never on a V8 engine, so I would like to know if I should remove all 8 sperk plugs (i think yes) left + right rank. Then, as I don't want to inject fuel in the carb during the process, should I disconnect the fuel line after the ffuel pump and send it in a drum?
Thanks for helping.
Remove all 8 spark plugs. With the plugs removed you won't pull any air and fuel through the carburetor and float in the carburetor will keep the fuel pump from overfilling the carburetor.

Thanks Don.
