I picked up a very nice 1984 318 today that does not run. When cranking, the points push rod does not move and the engine sounds as if it has very little compression. The previous owner said it ran good before quitting. It has a 48" 3 point tiller mounted so I imagine it was working hard. I am going to remove and dismantle the engine when I get time but was wondering if others had seen the same problem.
