Measuring the compression pressure


8. Measure:

  • Compression pressure Out of specification Refer to steps (c) and (d).

a. Set the main switch to "ON".

b. With the throttle wide open, crank the engine until the reading on the compression gauge stabilizes.

c. If the compression pressure is above the maximum specification, check the cylinder head, valve surfaces and piston crown for carbon deposits.

Carbon deposits Eliminate.

d. If the compression pressure is below the minimum specification, pour a teaspoonful of engine oil into the spark plug bore and measure again.

Refer to the following table.
