Happy Easter folks!
I'm trying to find the correct diesel compression
test adapter for my engine
I've got a Volvo Penta
with Bosch fuel
injectors that have a 17mm body diameter (and no glow-plugs). Each of the two injectors is held in via a notched 'bar-type(?)' hold-down clamps, with two nuts each. The injector body slides into a notch in the bar, then you push that assembly into the head
and secure with the nuts.
I have a Star TU-15 diesel compression
tester but don't know what model adapter to purchase
. Star has photos of adapter TU-11A that looks correct (comes with hold down bar) but doesn't give the adapter diameters. Their application guide meanwhile calls for TU-18A adapter but that adapter photo
shows no bar (I can use mine) AND doesn't show a groove that my bar would slide into to hold the adapter into the engine
I've looked at Harbor Freight, called Motormite and studied photos of Star and Bacharach products. Does anyone know the adapter model number for my engine from any brand?
Thanks in advance,
