Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

Have you checked compression and fuel pressure? How old is the fuel iteself, and have you run it off of a different tank? What is the story behind the engine, when did it last run correctly?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ran motor off of our shop tank with no results. Compression @ Leak Down fine. Fuel Pres ok. It idles fine but when RPM goes up so does missfire.

Can you tell me what your compression and fuel pressures actually are, the numbers?

Also, I do not know your level of expertise. Are a shop, dealer, or a backyard guy? Have you done a cylinder drop test to try to find the misfire, or plug the engine into YDS?
