    Scott - Have you taken the fuel lines off the top of the metering head and measured the flow through the head? You might need to start further back than the injectors. They are also quite simple to rebuild with a little patience.

    I also replaced all the flexi pipes as both these and the rigid pipes were pretty gummed up! They are also notorious for splitting!

    I just had my first look at your youtube (episode 9 ) and just an observation I think they are too long with repeating the same information, and I think they would be better if you where more concise. e.g you could have said I got a new compression tester today and turned the first two minuets into 5 seconds

    tempted to suggest a cam timing/ belt issue, maybe it slipped some teeth that's taken the valves out

    That's what I suspect - I'm unsure what access is like on the 308 but its hopefully something that can be checked in-situ.

    Caught up tonight and enjoyed the vids to date.

    i must say I admire your commitment working on a narrow drive in winter with no weather protection or light. Iíll not complain about my narrow garage again

    Iíd echo the other comments about a possible valve timing issue......

    Keep the updates coming......
