    Compression Check on the Bench?

    Is it possible to do a compression check on a 66V engine while on the work bench? I assume bolting it down REAL good, but can I just hook up a battery to the starter or is it more complex?

    If it's a dumb idea, go ahead - I can take it.

    Thanks!

    I don`t see a problem with that. Bolt it to table and positive to the starter bolt and negative to the housing.

    Sure you can, but obviously it will not be a "hot" test. It will give you an idea of where you are compression wise, but know if it is a fresh rebuild, the numbers may change.

    Done it before and later when in the ski. Was about 5-6 pounds lower on the bench.
