Its a 95 7.3L.
So, with all of the rocker arms and push-rods removed, I should be able to do a compression test? I was told that I have to crank the engine for a compression test. Is that true? Or can I manually move the engine?
Is there any way to inspect the camshaft with just the valve covers removed? I'd like to see if the lobes have any scarring or damage.
Won't cranking or turning the engine if a piece of piston is broken score the cylinder wall?
I don't want to cause anymore damage and I don't want to completely tear it down if I don't have to.
On a brighter note, I found a reman'd engine for $2650. If the valves, piston(s), and cam are toast, a new engine will probably be cheaper.
