its hard to say what it should be, since it can vary by 30-50 psi, just based on different tecniques of different people, but as long as they are close to each other, they are usually good. but thats a lot of oil to burn. does it smoke? maybe valve guides.

not sure if it smokes, didnt ask, it has 200,000 kms on it and he wants 1500 CAD, but i think its a good deal seeing as how i will be replacing most of the parts, he said it has no cracks and runs well. Im gunna go see it before I go any further...

if youre planning on rebuilding it, just offer him 1200 when you get there. tell him it needs more work than you thought.
