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

Be warned. you are going to fight the glow plug harnesses out, so have new ones in hand and ready to go.

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.
