What page in the Service Manual can the compression values be found? Must be missing something..can't seem to find them...

Five years ago my pre-purchase survey for the 1985 3GMF was #1-345, #2-320, #3-380. 320 was considered at the bottom of the range. The engine has run fine (knock on wood) since then. Oil tests come back good.

I have that engine. compression is supposed to be between 390 and 470. You sound low. Also one of them is significantly lower than the other two. Is your valve clearance what its supposed to be? (.2mm)
