Leak down test

If you have a good compressor this will isolate about 90% of it. Go to your napa or any good parts store and rig up a fitting that will screw into your cylinders head and connect your quick coupler from your air hose.Make sure the fitting doesnt go deep into the cylinder broken pistons are not good....

TWO STAGE URATHANE

This is my view on this subject. Poly Urathane is a very durable product. When applied properly will last for years. The old days of Acrilic Enamnal you had to spray your base coat let it tack up then spray your clear coat then you had to let it dry for 30 days and let it shrink and let all of the s...
