Engine Tests

Finally found a decent grey motor locally which I plan to eventually drop in the EJ to return it to original.

It looks pretty clean and the bloke I bought it from was able to show me a video of it running in the car he pulled it from. I want to run a couple of tests and see if it needs a rebuild. Compression test is easy but was wondering if you can check oil pressure by just cranking it over, or does the engine need to be running to get an accurate idea?

Handbrake

Image: 

I bought a new handbrake handle to replace mine which is chipped and broken. But can't see how to get the old one off. Looks like a brass plug underneath, it's not a screw. Do you drill it out or what? Anyone have any tips on getting the handle off?

Head Gasket Question

Got a question for the engine gurus. Is it possible to have a slight engine gasket leak which only shows up at certain revs? I have a 138 red which idles fine, runs smooth as silk when cruising around town around 60k's but has a slight miss and engine vibration at about 2200 revs, 70 kmh in top gear. Once you hit 3000 revs, about 90 k's she is smooth as again. Does not use any oil at all between changes, blows no smoke and I'm not losing any coolant. No oil in the coolant or vice versa. Engine runs very slightly warm, around 90 celsius.

Steering Box Brace

Fitted one of these braces to the steering box today and the difference is very noticeable. The steering is lighter at low speed and the whole car feels tighter on the road. Well worth the $50. A mob called Sonic Injection is making them.

Ignition Advance

Image: 

Does anyone know the right advance numbers for the red motor? Mine is a 138 red (2250 ex Torana) and runs great but just a little harsh around 2200 rpm, noticeable in top gear - just a bit of vibration,. At other revs is silky smooth. I ran a timing light over the marks at different revs and here's what I got (vac line blocked off and including initial advance of 5 degrees)

700 rpm = 5 degrees
1400 rpm = 19 degrees
1600 rpm = 23 degrees
1800 rpm = 28 degrees
2100 rpm = 32 degrees
3000 rpm = 36 degrees
