Are you thinking pitot/static or engine cylinder testing?

I have this one. Works well!

Description is a little misleading, as the copy indicates that it's for a Rotax 912, but it has fittings for Lycoming/Continental.

These days the fundamental choice is to buy a test set with or without a Continental orifice. You'll need the extra doodad to discuss anything about cylinders with a Continental rep. Not needed for a Lycoming.

Read the sidebar for details:
