    Default Compression test

    What should the compression on a k 241 motor 10 hp mine is reading 30 psi I'm thinking it should be around 90 of above ?

    Default Re: Compression test

    If memory serves the K241 engine had a compression release to aid in starting. (Keep in mind what is said about age and memory). Obtaining or doing a compression check on an engine with a compression release is tricky. If the engine has compression release, 30 PSI on the engine when being spun by the starter may be normal.
