Low compression

I've checked and adjusted my valves and well as hone the cylinder and installed new rings but still can only get 50 lbs psi compression. I also checked for valve leakage and don't have any. Is there anything thing else I can do to improve my compression?

I moved this to it's own thread as the one you replied to was 10 years old and off topic.

Knowing what you have would help tremendously... some engines have a compression release, so you aren't going to get a very high reading with a gauge.
