2012-03-08 Leakdown Testing

Forums: 

 

These numbers taken with a cold engine that had been sitting inside a metal building for 8 months. 

I'm pretty happy with them! 

Testing technique :

  1. Set inlet reg to 20 psi
  2. Rotate crank until outlet reg registers max reading
  3. Increase inlet press to 80 psig while holding crank with breaker bar to prevent piston movement
  4. Read and record
