So, if I do a compression test and get readings between 120 and 150, then do you guys reckon getting the head rebuilt without touching the block/pistons/rings, despite the high mileage?

Did you do dry, or wet compression test?

Dry comp test, but I didn't pull all the plugs. Is that necessary? Or can I just pull one at a time?

Pull all plugs then do it so if pressure moves from one to another you have better readings, the wet test will tell you if you will have to touch anything other than the head.

You're correct. Fuel pressure spec varies with different years on the XJ.

For your 92, 31 psi is the spec at idle.
