what compression

Have a buddy looking at 2014 DF300s with 1000+ hrs. All cylinders have 120-140lbs compression. Is that the right range?

I just installed their add-a-battery a month ago and had a question that they promptly responded to. I had a great experience with them and with NewWire Marine who made my switches.

good prop shop in Melbourne/Canaveral?
