  • Valve Adjusting wrench set with feeler gauges and detailed instructions. Note: A proper valve adjustment MUST be done before a compression test in order to assure accurate results.
  • Diesel Engine Compression Tester with detailed instructions. A cranking compression test is key to determining the internal physical health of the engine. And the engine is the most important and most valuable asset of the car.  FREE VIDEO COMPRESSION TEST INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED.
  • 60 inches of injector return hose and 4 heat shield crush washers.  The fuel injectors need to be removed when doing a compression test. Replacement of the injectors will require replacement of the sealing washers under the injectors and the rubber injector fuel return hose.
  • Fuel Injector Socket. A must-have in order to easily remove the fuel injectors for testing.
  • Advanced Fault Diagnostic Manual for Diesel Engines.  This pictorial manual will walk you through diagnosing all engine starting problems, shut off problems, performance problems, noise problems, and fluid leak problems.  A must-have for every 220D 240D diesel owner.
  • As an extra bonus, we will include a new 4 cylinder valve cover gasket FREE OF CHARGE. The valve cover gasket should be changed every time the valve cover is removed to prevent leaks.

If you already have one or more of the above items just order the others individually to complete your exam kit.  backinstock

Doing a compression check on a 61x diesel is not difficult if you have the right equipment!

IMPORTANT NOTICE PLEASE READ: We are removing some of the fittings from the case. These are fittings that do not apply to Mercedes Diesel Engines or are multiple fittings of the same that you would not use. This will prevent confusion as to what you should use when compression testing your engine. Do not be alarmed when you receive your test kit. Please see the picture below to note empty spaces.
