Found the compression problem in the 302

I was hoping the 30psi compression in #7 was due to a badly blown headgasket, seems that was not the case unfortunately,
anyone got a .040 302 piston and rod laying about?

Yup, which is why the motor will most likely be scrapped, .040 already, glazed bores, bit of a lip, not worth keepning really.
