More specifically a model 5269. Can anyone tell me where the compression should be?

phew! It's right at about 65. I thought it was really really low.

Does that apply to C,D,F and DF? Or are they all different?

"Rule of Thumb" Remove the spark plug wire, turn the engine backwards half turn, flip the flywheel forward (clockwise) if the piston hits compression and rebounds, it has enough compression to run, if it just mushed to a stop, not good. Applies to all engines.

If memory serves me correct, the D-600 had a minimum cranking compression pressure of 75 PSI, and the F, V, and E were 90 PSI.

I haven't read a service manual in decades...I more or less memorized them all when I was a kid, and still know most of what I read.
