Rotary Compression Tester

#1 Post by DKWW2000 » Sat Oct 27, 2018 9:57 pm

Just bought a new toy from USA & used it for the first time on my S3, very compact & simple to use, has a Ext cable for RHD vehicles to make cranking easy. It took longer to find the fuse for the Fuel Pump than it did to do the test :oops:
Pleased with the results:-

Thomas the Tester cost £220 + £30 Tax/postage.
I did the test on each Rotor 2 times & readings varied by 0.1 on the numbers.
Have not tested the TII yet....too cold & wet :lol:

im less than happy with my interaction. i bought one of the last aus versions and within a month the company changed hands
and went overseas.
from new the unit would eat a 9 volt battery turned off overnight .
it went less than a dozen uses and failed within the first year

the new owner didnt want to make exchange/ replacement viable. in fact made it more expensive with considerable time quotient to double ship a faulty unit back and forth registered mail my expense much like a china seller hides behind the postage before warrantee
i really could not fathom why he wanted my old unit back. i would gladly have paid more for the new case and no delays or double ship
as such i believe the owner made it deliberately difficult for me to achieve warrantee satisfaction


the unit failed australian consumer law where by with an expensive electronics/ whitegoods unit i should expect "reasonable use" and the new owner refused to reasonably accept the liabilities that come when you buy a company .
im fairly sure in stu's hands in australia i still would have been covered . but it seems dealing with USA traders now days can be very haphazard

i bought instead a new DCT-500 unit from australia for about the cost of the post back and forth USA, delivered express post


when the going is hard, don't retard, remember your lubrication

Shit, that's unfortunate Paul. Mine is still going strong on the original battery all these years later. I've used it a whole bunch, I bring it to the track with me, test friends cars etc.

I think mine is one of the first ones Stu did from memory.
