Yes well done Dave, you certainly jumped in at the deep end! Not all T/C jobs are that harrowing.

Well done, glad it's all OK. While those compression figures are seemingly low they aren't disastrous and are well within the 10% range that they are supposed to be. Could just be down to being a standard engine with higher duration camshafts.

If it drives well though I wouldn't mess with it for now!
