Compression Tester

Looking to purchase a Tester. Harbor Freight has them from @17.00 and up.
They are China I'm sure and may not be much good! NAPA has one for $45.00. Anyone have a Napa tester???? Good or Bad?

Re: Starter bolts

My Ford Parts Manual lists them as 5/16 - 18 x 7.15 inches. If it has Fordomatic the length is 7.65 inches.

Re: coil question

I installed a new coil on my l949 last summer. It is a Napa Echkin #IC7 and it works just fine. I have one on my l950 also, put it on about 12 years ago. So now you can sleep better.
