    Hi

    Does anyone undertake small turning jobs?

    I need a couple of adapters turned up out of brass for my Sykes Pickavant Diesel Compression tester.

    I am modifying an old injector so that I can run a compression test on my 1957 Ferguson FE35

    Thanks
    Tony

    If it's like the adapter for landrover s it's just a bit of steel with a hole in it and a thread on one end.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Hi Graffian.

    No I have taken the guts out of an old injector , blanked off the leakoff port, and the cut the end off the nipple that injector pipe screws onto then drilled and tapped it 8mm
    I now need a adapter for the pressure test to fit on. (Mine is an early SP Tester so does not fit the heater plug adapters)
