Compression test without a starter
I am looking at a 96 Hurricane with "electrical problems" and a bad starter, can I get even close to a rough guess on the compression of the motor without a starter to spin it?

Here's one way:
Tape or tie the throttle lever open
All plugs out, of course
Take off drive shaft cover
Wrap a rope around the shaft and yank it, be sure you're spinning in correct direction.

Yup, it's just an idea popped up in my head when I saw your post.
On a revised note, I'll change the rope to a flat strap, it rolls up to larger diameter making start of the pull much easier. Report back whether it works or not. Thanks
