Spec is 85-87 psi. Full choke is being used on cold startup. Full choke alone is not enough, it needs a push start and pop the clutch or completely block the air intake per the seller.

1930 7th Series- 320 engine- low compression issue- help sought...

Seeking some advice: I’m looking at buying a 1930 Packard 7th series Standard Eight with the 320 engine. Engine was rebuilt just a few years ago due to combustion pressure moving into the cooling system. Was bored out and sleeved to factory dimensions. Now it won’t start when cold unless the air intake to the carb is blocked. It runs well cold or hot with no noise, no smoke, very smoothly. Once warmed up it starts easily. However, suffers from low compression on every cylinder. (60 psi across the board). Carb and fuel vacuum tank have both been professionally rebuilt recently. Valves have been adjusted. Does anyone have any ideas what is causing the low compression? I assume that is the reason for the hard cold starting. Thanks!

I'm not a fan of restomods, but it was done nicely. Do you know what the price was?

I think you are close. As the "old style" Ford Pickup continued production for the F-250 and F-350 thru 1997 and into the early 1998 model year, I believe the last to carry vent windows would have been the 1998 F-350 Super Duty. They are sorely missed. I wish every vehicle had them. And I don't smoke!
