I was thinking about getting a compression tester for my old M-B diesel.
That way I can keep a better watch on what is going on with the engine, if
the engine is shot and needing overhaul, etc. Its the '85 5-cyl 300 SD
engine, which is supposed to have the valves adjusted regularly. Autozone
has compression testers for *gas*
engines, and they are only around $20.00.
But where to get one for diesel engines...and would they cost a lot more? I
know they are bound to cost more, since the pressures are very much higher.
But I am thinking that buying one might be about the same as the cost of one
compression check at a diesel speciality shop.
