powerstroke compression tester
I havent been able to find a compression test kit for the 7.3 powerstroke engine and have searched the forums to find out how to get one or make one with no luck. So hope this helps someone. The adapter you need to screw into the glow plug port is a M10x1.0 male metric w/oring X 1/8 female pipe i was lucky that my local COOP had this but i imagine it would b common at a large hydraulic dealer. i then attached a 12 inch long grease gun hose to the female pipe end then attached a 1/8 female to 1/4 male adapter to the other. Then i was able to attach 1/4 air line fitings to it so it would hook up the guage i borrowed from my local mechanic. So without buying a guage i've got about 10 bucks in my home made kit.
