    How do I properly test the compression on my 5.5 hp Briggs Intek. There must be a compression letoff since nothing would register on my guage. I know it has some compression since it runs fairly well and has only 40-50 hours on it. Any input would be appreciated

    Thanks Bob. I had no idea that it took special tools etc. I'm used to snowmobiles where I just screw it in and pull the cord a few times.
