Went to the local outozone to rent/borrow one of their compression testers, showing comp at 60pounds. I didn't think tha that was right, even on one fresh cylinder. Went to HF and picked this unit up and took it home. Pulled first plug comp was 90, the rest were in the upper 80's. Looks like the rent a tool was a piece of junk. If I believed it my motor would be in peices now getting rebuilt, for no reason, other than a faulty tool from a major parts store.

This tool is improperly designed. The tester has a check valve (Schrader valve on good models) located near the gage. This puts several feet of hose between the cylinder head and valve, increasing volume, therefore readings will be lower.I tested this tester with a $30 jobber from sears which had the proper valve location - at the end of the hose near cyl head. Results were about 90psi with this tester versus 145psi with a properly designed one. A difference enough to warrant a tear down!!!!!!

Works good. Placement of release valve has no bearing on reading of the gauge. I am pleased with my purchase.

      has a wide variety of sizes to accommodate a number of uses. worked great on the open side of my v6, but couldn't use it on the firewall side. the tubes a a bit too long for tight spaces. the value is great for what you get. i think my situation may be unusual. i had to return it.

      Great Compression Tester Kit

      By CBXRoger

      from Sun City, AZ

      About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Pittsburgh Automotive Quick-Connect Compression Tester:

      I was tracing weak cylinders on my motorcycle engine. First I used an infrared temp tool to check for low temps on the exhaust pipes, but it wasn't definitive enough. I went to Harbor Freight and purchased a Compression Tester Kit. The cylinder spark plug replacement adapter was easy to install and the gauge set had a quick disconnect. It was an easy, one person, operation to check all six cylinders in a matter of minutes.

      All the parts store in a plastic case for use in the future.
