    What's good compression numbers??

    My HS40 started out as a worn out big time smoker. I rehoned and used .010 over rings file fitted. I get 70psi on the first hard pull, 95psi on the second and 105 on the third. This is a hot engine with the throttle wide open and air filter off. Im guessing this is good??
