You can take a glow plug apart and make a tester. Would probably be easier.

You are not correct. All Powerstrokes use a Glow plug adapter to test compression.

You would not be able to modify a PSD injector to do this, and would not be happy with the results.

Read this tread and built the correct adapter.

there is a vid on yourtube somewhere and a guy shows you what he bought to make a tester. you may have to bump the motor a few times to clear the rocker arm. butwhat this guy did was make an extension so he didnt have to.
