Is 180 about right compression for a '65 289??

Thanks,

It sounds great Brian if they are all close to that. (I am not going to get into the whys and whats about how high is good right now as there are many variables that determine cranking compression)

If it is 180 across the board , or , if they are all within 10 high or low yes it sounds good. If it is a stock untouched original motore from 1965 , I would say it is great compression. It also depends on what you have done to your motor if it has been rebuilt.
