do a compression test, if all within spec forget the leakdown. I like to use a leak down only after a bad compression test to figure out problem. I know a couple people who have done a leakdown and torn a motor apart to find out there was nothing wrong with it. I recenly had a 3.2 sitting on shop floor, bad leakdown numbers on one cylinder but i was confident that motor was fine. I put the motor in, ran it and rechecked and compression and leakdown numbers they were fine. The smalllest bit of carbon can fool you.
