I can't open the link right now...cest la vie.

I bought a 20 or 30 dollar job from Advance to use mostly for two stroke stuff. It has done well for me. Just make sure it has the thread adapter you need. As for snap-on, they're wonderful tools that are made for people who make their living with them. Don't feel bad buying a tool that was made for the weekend guy if you are the weekend guy.

I bought one of the over there comp testers off a Evil-bay store for diesel motors what a piece of CRAP. It shows the motor to have way more compression than factory and I'm sure its low judging from the blowby.

I went to Autozone this morning. They had one for $39.00 but it didn't grab me. I am going to look around again Friday maybe at PEP boys and some other places. I like the one Maynard has with the case to keep everything together nice and neat.

I kept watching Ebay and eventually ended up with a good used professional type made in the good ole U.S.A. OTC comp gauge for less than what I paid for the piece of junk that I bought earlier off the big Evil-B.

HA! I have a pair of Snap-On crimpers I bought one day (I REALLY needed them); nothing special, but still about 50 clams.

OK believe it or not I pulled the hammer down and ordered this OTC #5605 Deluxe Compression Tester at Amazon.com for $81.00 with shipping. :thumbup:

Summit carried this one too so I assumed it wasn't garbage. I've been a good boy kind of, actually not really, but it will be a present from the wife, I mean Santa. Ho Ho Ho :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
I'll let everyone know how this one is. :thumbup:

My experience with OTC is that they make a good quality product. I have used various tools of their brand and was always satisfied.
Thanks BG that's good to hear. BTW the Snap on one like Maynard's was on E Bay used yesterday and already at $51.00 with a lot of interest.

I did deliveries and outside sales for an auto parts wholesaler/jobber for ten years and we sold OTC tools. If someone wasn't happy with something we sold them I was the first person to here about it and I can't remember a single time that we had an OTC tool returned for warranty during that ten years.
