I have a 30 year old compression tester...probably used it 3 times

I imagine this onewould be near impossible to use pn my 96 OB 2.5

What's a good brand that has the flexibility to get into this area?

Going to move this to the shop talk forum since it's more of a specific tool type question.

How much are you looking to spend?
If money is no object, I would suggest going to a local shop and finding out when a shop truck comes around.
Snap-On
Matco
Cornwell
If you are trying to save money, try Sears, NAPA, etc.
