302 with no compression
 
Hey guys, my brothers got an 87 f-150 with a 95 302 in it we just put new head gaskets in it and now for some stupid reason we have no compression and it won't run worth a ****. Is there something were not thinking of? Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated we have no idea. Thanks guys

are the heads warped? did you properly torque all bolts?

Yeah there torqued down to the book. Everyones been saying its a cracked block but it isn't that either.

is there no compression in all 8 cylinders or only a couple or one bank?

+1 - That would do it.

just tighten a 1/2 turn past the point where you cant twist the push rod
