Engine Compression Test - A compression test reveals the condition of your engine's valves, its valve seats, and piston rings and whether these parts are wearing evenly. Healthy engines should have compression between 140-160 psi per cylinder (depending on motor type and mfgr. Diesels will be higher), with no more than 10 percent variation between the highest and lowest readings.
Out of water hull Inspection -The hull truth and nothing but the truth
