Hi Bryan,

-3 Fahrenheit.  I want to check the compression again but just like several 
others talking about it now, I have 1 cracked injector boss and it makes me 
nervous each time I pull that injector. Mine were all 275 before installing 
the engine but that was with jumper cables.  I checked one cylinder after 
it was installed because I had to pull #4 injector to find TDC since my 
flywheel mark is off somehow.  It still showed 275 but I don't think there 
is anyway it would be running the way it is if it really were that low.  It 
runs rough in the morning for a minute or so but then smooths out and 
purrs.   I got a block heater for Christmas. Hope to get it in this week if 
it warms up a little. Don't know what I am doing so I don't want to get 
halfway into it and run into problems in these temps.
