Hey all, I picked up a 91 escort gt left for dead. I have some questions on this thing, but first I'll introduce myself. My name is Luke, I've went through life buying what I consider neat cars, fixing them up and then selling them for a loss. I always wanted to lose money on an escort gt but they've been hard to find most of my life until now. This car has sat for a couple years, wouldn't run and I have very little info on it's past. I picked it up and did a compression check only to see it has 0, 35, 90, 0. Now for my first question, is there a special procedure on these for a compression check? I just pulled the fuel fuse and went at it. After I ran the test I checked the timing belt, it is brand new, so later this week I am going to put it at tdc and check the job was done right. My last question is how likely are these cars to have head gasket issues? I know I'm getting fuel as the spark plugs reek of it, and I'm getting spark as well. Thanks for reading!!! If timing looks good I'll be pulling the whole motor and having some fun.
