1. Pull plugs
2. screw compression gauge in cylinder, when finger tight pull motor over 5-6 times
3. Repeat with same amount of pulls for the opposite cylinder

A 7 hundo Poo should show around 125-130 psi give or take a couple.

They both should be the same psi and the engine should be COLD!!

Keep in mind going one gauge to the next will vary in readings. No 2 gauges seem to be the same. You just want to see the same reading between both cylinders (withing a couple psi). Holding the throttle open will not change your reading vs closed.

uhhhh 'puddin' head' that is incorrect an engine should be warm so the rings are seated properly---even a leak down should be done while warm.
And that is correct about not holding the throttle open but it will reach the peak quicker if you do....within 10% between the 2 cylinders is acceptable.

Throttle should be held open.....With throttles closed you will pull more pulls to get to 100#, plus with them closed you may get innacurate readings should one slide be open just a little more.
