compression test question
the engine i bought came today and looks quite nasty; looks way worse then my dusted engine with 250k on it.
the donor engine , e series, has quite a lot of caked oil under and around lower part of cover. this leads me to believe that this engine had been severely neglected. paint under valve cover is flaking due to long period of immersion in oil
before i send it back, i would like to do a compression test. the engine is on a pallet but looks like i cannot use a starter to turn it over.
can i turn it over by hand?
Also, since i have a single AD injector and this engine has none installed, can i simply use the single injector one cyl at a time testing as i move inj from one cyl to the other?
