Harbor freight has diesel compression gauge kits with various adapters. Cheap!

Harbor Freight is crap. Call Diesel Innovations in Houston, tell them I sent you from the .org. I have 2 of DI's compression gauges, and they are both accurate.

I have a snap-on kit as well. Works very well, but more expensive than the DI kit.

No doubt Snap-On is great stuff. Both my compression gauges are Snap-On but then I made my living as a wrench in a Ford garage for 12+ years. Don't mean to start a flame war or be inflammatory towards anyone, but I will still maintain that for the average back yard DIY'er that just wants to take care of his/her truck, the Harbor Freight tool is adequate. I've actually seen one....... Happy Halloween
