That’s all right. It’s more important that they are close than exactly at spec , I’ve read

Probably top end from a timing belt failure?

Yeah I guess. Timing belt has wear on outside, really not sure what’s going on. Belt maybe jumped a few teeth? I’m not gonna speculate very much, just pull the head off and see what’s going on.

Those tyres look way too small as well.

It’s an XC AWD, think tire size is right.

ZERO compression......that's interesting. I'd like to hear more about what's happened here. An old non-interference engine with a broken timing gear or similar will do that because the valve train isn't moving. But there might be one valve shut somewhere and you'd get a number.

Sounds like you did a compression test. Did you also check the timing?

It is possible, but doubtful, it is out of time. Still worth the work to double check your marks. I suppose someone may have had a bad pulley or tensioner - just replaced that and screwed it up. Checking the timing would eliminate this scenario.

Most likely, as speculated, the timing moved/belt broke and bent some valves. Someone may have put a used belt on to see if they got lucky or readjusted the belt/pulleys, learned they did not and sold it to your careful hands at a next to nothing price. What did you pay?

Yeah I was thinking checking the timing before I tear it apart. Guy who sold it seemed honest, worked as a diesel mechanic and did the head 10k miles ago. Paid $500

They look quite skinny for 215/65-16s which iirc is the correct size.

Looks really nice otherwise. Nice climate for the cars I guess. Some work on the black plastic and it'll look like new.

After you've found the whole compression issue ofc ;-)
