Use this kit to test the compression on most diesel engines, it comes with 12 different adaptors to fit in either the glow plug or injector recces holes
Use this tool kit to identify worn valves and piston rings of most diesel engines through testing the compression of the cylinder
The gauge has a range of 0-70 Bar/0-1000 Psi.
Comes with 9 different glow plugs and 4 injector adaptors.

To perform a diesel compression test, use the following procedures:
Make sure you have a well charged battery or the battery on charge as this procedure can use a lot of power
STEP 1 Using an air line, blow away all dirt and debris from around the injectors or glow plugs.
STEP 2 Disconnect the fuel pump solenoid or injector electrical plugs (or any other way to stop fuel being injected into the cylinder). Remove either the injectors or glow plugs (normally the glow plugs are the common test area as they are easier to remove.
STEP 3 Start the threaded end of the compression gauge in a glow plug or injector hole by hand and then lightly tighten. make sure all other injectors or glow plugs are removed as it makes it easier to turn the engine over
STEP 4 Turn the ignition on , and crank the engine over for 3-4 revolutions. check the compression reset and try again (do this 2-3 times) if very low double check there is no leaking through the threads on the glow plug or injector
STEP 5 Repeat the test on all cylinder and record the results
On a healthy diesel engine, good compression usually falls between 275 to 400 psi, with a variation of no more than 10 percent between any two cylinders. the compression can vary on a wet and dry test.
Always check against the vehicle specifications on the recommended compression.
Cylinder compression tests are performed to identify any cylinders that have poor compression. If a cylinder has low compression, perform a wet compression test to indicate whether it’s a bad valve, head gasket, or worn piston rings causing the problem.

Core / Exchange Explained
Although most parts in the automotive industry are manufactured from brand new parts, many are also remanufactured. Core charges act as an incentive for customers to return old units to the supplier. These parts can be rebuilt and re-circulated into aftermarket benefiting the consumer by keeping prices at a discounted rate. Other advantages include; recycling of old or hard to find parts, waste reduction and keeping parts available that might otherwise be redundant.
Please note, the core that is returned must be able to be repaired. If the core is not reusable, the core charge will not be refunded.
How does a core charge / refund work?
The core charge for the unit will be included in the total price. The breakup of this will be mentioned at time of quote or listed online. Once the unit has been received back by the supplier and inspected for its reusability, the core charge will then be refunded / credited. Please refer to table below for core charge amounts.
For example: you purchase a remanufactured pump for $1200 that has a $200 core charge applied. You buy the pump for $1200, fit it to your vehicle and return the old unit back. As this unit can be reused, you get the $200 core charge refunded. Which means the actual price you pay is $1000 for the pump.
Conditions of Return
The return of the old unit is the customers responsibility and therefore the customer incurs any freight costs associated (we can organize from our end and take the freight costs from the core charge refund).
The returned unit must not be so badly damaged or contaminated that it can no longer be repaired to fully working condition. The returned unit must also be the same injector or pump as supplied (it cannot be replaced with a similar one)
