#4 CYL HAS COMPRESSION FROM 60# TO 90# AT 136K MILES - IS THAT TYPICAL OF A 1988 560SL? RECOMMEND MECHANIC IN PENSACOLA FL?

No.  Very much Not typical

No.  Very much Not typical and indicative of a Major problem.  Given the mileage I'd lean more towards jumped timing chain then anything else..but could any number of problems.  I would like to see a wet compression or leak down test done on that cylinder.

Sadly, I don't know of anyone in Pensacola off hand.
