    Engine was rebuild @ 15 years ago and turned over from time to time.  Now have new fuel pump, timed to 1 TDC, spark to #1, new carbs, oil pressure @ 35 on crank, & distributor set with rotor facing #1.  However, zero compression on all 4 cylinders (dry & wet).  Set valves to 19 +1 for cold engine.   Looking for assistance or direction from someone with more knowledge than Ruel & Jane to get it to start. Right now this 1953 MGTD is just a doorstop.  Ruel & Jane Wiley 832-567-8071 (cell) & home 281-778-9891.  RuelWiley48@yahoo.com
