  Good thing, your compression is fairly even.  How many revolutions did 
you have to crank to get those readings?  Most of the low price testers 
use a fairly large hose, this makes the readings much slower to rise and 
also makes for a much larger combustion chamber area and most likely 
a bit lower readings than reality.  The really nice tester uses a fairly 
ID and has a flexible filler, like a speedometer cable in it.
