 3.5 psi  is a good pressure for carbs. Have you done a fuel volume test. Pressure and volume are not the same thing. You can have one without the other.

I have not. I feel it could be the volume as the triples need volume but not pressure as you said.

I did a couple tests wide open and no throttle at all. Numbers were roughly 110, 90, 110, 120, 120 and 130.
We compressed some air into the cylinders and the bottom end seems solid still. I'm guessing valve issues still. 
And oddly enough the driver side seemed slack and the passenger was tight. My car is lhd
I thought you had to have throttle wide open on a hot engine for an accurate compressions test? It needs to breath between pressure readings right?
