Diesel engines utilize a fuel injector on each cylinder to inject fuel for combustion. Although they do not use spark plugs to ignite the fuel, most utilize glow plugs to aid cold starts.
In order to access the compression within a cylinder, an adapter is required which replaces either the injector or the glow plug.
Sunbright offers injector and glows plug adapters to facilitate testing of most diesel engines in use in cars and light trucks, industry, construction, marine, and agriculture.
Our Diesel Compression Tester is suitable for most kinds of vehicles, cars, small truck, etc.
