Here's a new tool from Thexton. Small engine cylinder leakdown tester works the same as the ones for full size engines but made specifically for small engines. It's the first item at the top.

great diagnostic tool.........we use that before checking compression. You can verify condition of intake and exhaust valve seating as well as blowby past rings.
If engine is good shape ,the rest is downhill....

Unless you're Ingersoll's kohler......:eek:mg:

Neil…sixchows…

How do you use this ?
Fill the cylinder with air and check how long it takes to drop
from X psi to Y psi ?

If yes :
What pressure do you start at ?
How long to drop how far is considered OK ?
