I did a compression check (w/Full throttle) on the engine the results are as follows :
Are these ok? Mind you, this motor has 262,000 mls.
Any insight or information as to what I may have missed or what to try would be greatly welcomed and appreciated.

you either did one of these, or i have no idea.
1 are bot marks pointing in the same direction? when one cam mark is up the other should be pointing down.
the chiltons makes it look like they are supposed to point the same direction. but they have to be opposite.
2 you are 180 out. turn the motor around till its pointing in the other direction at 8-20 degrees, then take the rotor out and stick it in at the 1 agian.
basically turn the rotor around.
those are my two mistakes, that have screwed me for days at a time.
