Why go past tdc? Both valves should be closed, right? I've used a leakdown tester once, but couldnt justify buying one. I take the schraeder valve out of my compression gauge and hook the quick coupler directly to shop air at TDC. I have an adapter since the coupler on the compression tester is different than the one I use for my air tools. I have used a rubber tipped blow gun before when I didnt have the adapter available. I cant figure peercentage of leakdown, but I can tell where the leak is and how bad by how much air is flowing.
