    Westebeke W-70 (70hp) 4500 hrs,

    compression is 460- 500-500-480 (checked thru glow plugs - injectors not removed)

    Starts and runs very well, no smoke - idle is smooth.

    PO says valves have never been adjusted nor have the injectors been pulled.

    So, do I leave it alone and dont adjust the valves or pull the injectors? Not familiar with the Westebeke (mitsubishi block?)

    I know I have to do it on my diesel cars -

    thanks in advance

    Check and ajust the valve if needed. Leave the injector alone.
