Just inherited an LRP Z.28 engine. Compression on it is low. The guy said that I could use some "sealer" on it to fix. Haven't heard of such a thing. Everything I've seen says that you need a new piston and sleeve. Don't know which way to go......

theres no way to seal it to get back compression, new P/S is what you need.
there are companies that can pinch you current sleeve to get a couple more gallons out of it
