Im pretty sure a compression test is done by turning over a motor. The reason why i ask on how to do it myself is so i can learn and also to make sure for myself the reading the PO is accurate with what i get. I can sell u a motor saying it has great compression but u wont take my word for it right? So i want to check myself everything is and will run fine.
