Default compression tester adapter

If you walk into Harbor Freight, you will see a diesel compression tester kit with several adapters, including the one you need for the d24, d24t. It was around $26 for the entire kit. It is sold in a red color flat hard-case.

There was one 5191 tool listed on ebay recently, for 9.99 plus some shipping. Idk if it is still listed or not.

Dont fully trust the results unless you`ve just adjusted the valves to specifications.

Thanks for the post and welcome to the board.

That tool set will give you a few things you can use but unfortunately it does not include most of the tools required for timing belt replacement, etc. It's designed for the 4 cylinder VW engine and would give you almost everything you needed for one of those (minus the dial indicator), but the portion of it that could be used on the Audi/D24 versions would require adaptation. The 4 cylinder style holder and rod for the dial indicator in this kit is shorter so you would need to remove the vacuum pump to use it, and you would have to grind material off the ends of the cam locking plate to make it clear the rear valve cover studs on the D24. The IP locking dowel would be too long for use on a Volvo but you could shorten it to fit in the rare case where you needed one. The 2-pin spanner wrench for the 4 cylinder belt tensioner would not be used on the 5/6cyl belt setup.

For most timing related work on a D24 you would also need at minimum the crank pulley locking tool and the cam counterhold tool (9995187 and 9995199 from the info on the first page of the thread). Would help to have the cam bolt offset wrench extension and the longer dial indicator holder and rod but you could manage without them if you had to.

In short a kit like this would give you some useful or partially useful pieces depending on what work you needed to do, but you'd be getting some things you don't need and missing some things you do need. It can be cheaper and easier to buy the pieces you need individually, or fabricate them, or borrow some or all from members here. The one thing you don't want to do is get it torn down thinking you have what you need and then discover you're missing a critical tool to get it back together and running again.

Tool Rental Master List thread is here in case you need it.
