Compression test

In order to do a compression ,do I need a special adapter for the glow plug threads ? Also I am thinking I can use any diesel compression gauge too correct ?

Thanks,Robert

You had talked with one of my friends a while back(kdogg85) and he was talking about you put a new motor in or along those lines anyway. I sure hope something hasn't crapped on you.
