Reply to "351C with 35,000 miles - Need to rebuild?"

I started the engine today on the test stand and the results are good thus far. Oil pressure is 75+ PSI even when the engine began to warm up. Oil is Valvoline VR1 20/50. The valve train sounds good. Compression on cylinder #1 read 180 or so. But my compression gauge is old and it is best to start over with a new one to complete the test. The only issue thus far is smoke (black I think?) from the right exhaust on restart. The exhaust looks and sounds good when the engine is running. I plan to complete the compression test tomorrow and will post the results.
