    Re: anyone have a cylinder compressor ? needed badly!

    You can make one out of an old spark plug or you can just get a length of cotton rope, stick it in the spark plug hole and turn the engine over until the rope presses up against the valve to hold it.

    If you need me to show you I can swing by tomorrow.

    i dont wanna mess with turninmg it over repeatedly, ive done that trick before, was a roYal pAIn in the rear. so how in the *(&^%$# do i make one out of a spark plug? i was thinking of using a piece of hose and a pressure regulator, GM recommends 50.lbs for it, but i dont have a regulator to make one /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    You don't want to turn the motor over everytime? Dude you have to to use the air as well? The rope trick is cool too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
