Yes Jarod, my Morris Six is one that the windows are fitted from the inside. Took a while to realise that when I was restoring it.

The last thing you need to do is cut the rubber to length before fitting it. As you feed the rubber onto the edge of the glass you need to push the rubber back onto itself as if to gather it up but not crinkling it. This allows for shrinkage later in life. Does this rubber have an insertion piece as well that you use to lock it all in place after the screen is fitted? If so it was mentioned that the join of the main rubber goes in the middle and at the bottom. If there is an insertion strip it joins at the top and some like on the TOranas have a small cover strip to go over that join.

Hi, I've done a compression test on all cylinders on my K Model Bedford 28HP & they range from :-
10 PSI to 85 PSI (Dry) & 10 PSI to 110 (Wet)
Clearly needs top overhaul & new rings. engine was very smokey last time it ran.:(
What optimum average readings should I expect to achieve from this engine?
I've been through all my manuals & there is no mention of PSI Cylinder Compression figures?
regards
Pierre

Cylinder psi depends on compression ratio, I would imagine that old plodder would be pretty low on compression even when in perfect order but 10psi is obviously rooted whereas 85 might be in the normal range. Have you got access to a leakdown gauge or some other way of injecting compressed air into the cylinders?

The manual says that readings should not vary more than 20psi and, although it doesn't state what they should be, does give an example reading of compressions - ranging from 81 (dry), to 115 (wet).
I thought your engine was rebuilt?
Also, your spare chassis - what type is it? B)

Is there a stuck valve or a valve seat that is causing the loss of pressure?

Just confirming that the tappets are loose and the throttle was wide open.
