Post 200tdi compression tester

Hello, I'm looking for a diesel compression tester to work on my 200tdi. Anyone have any reccommendations? Does anyone have a preference to check it at the glow plugs vs. injectors? I haven't been able to find a glow plug "dummy". I considered buying a universal diesel compression tester gauge like a Snap-On etc. I know snap-on sells a range of adapters, but was told the 200tdi has a 90 seal angle which is specific to the 200tdi. I considered hollowing out a glow plug and attaching a schrader valve on the end. Any help would be appreciated.

The Ford glow plug is the same thread as the 200 and 300 tdi and I use a glow plug dummy when I test those engines. If you want I can look at the kit when I get to the shop later today and give you the name.

Cool, and did the glow plug adapter come with the kit or did you buy that separate?

Kit contains four glowplug adapters as well two injectors - sadly only one glowplug adapter fits the 200 and 300tdi - but that's all you need

You could probably get one of the cheaper kits and buy the appropriate adapter separately.
