Cylinder pressure test

How we check for compression while building up a new engine by using a pressure tester. Cranking an engine while on a stand is not an option.

It's also a good indication of how the rings are bedding in after a 100 mile test drive.

Sometimes we get a bit of valve leakage, which you can hear hissing out of either an inlet or exhaust port. A quick tap on the offending valve will do the trick and seat the valve correctly.

Those in the know, know. Those that don't know, just need to ask.
