15bar is about 220 psi so pretty good comps for a petrol engine :y

I may try another tester at some point to try to get a nice accurate set of readings,but Im pretty confident  that all is well. :y

I just wish I had done it in the summer rather than the winter.If it was summer (or I had a garage rather than just the driveway to work on it) it would have been done and dusted by now. :(

I know how you feel about working on a car outside in this weather , great job your doing there  :y

no worries, even when you work in a garage still you freeze after 2-3 hours unless its perfectly heated  ..

hot shower is the next stop  :y

Albs good to know your the winter repair expert, so when I'm in the Ukraine and need a miggy outside winter repair done in a mild -36degC, I know who to call.  :y ::) ::) ::) ::)

I've enjoyed the thread and seeing your progress and I think it provides food for thought on what myself and others could do when repairing our cars.  :y

I'm sure you will have a warm glow of satisfaction, once you have finished, and the miggy is running sweet as a nut.  :y

I certainly hope so Rod.Im not that good at working in cold conditions these days tbh.I worked outside for years,but have had a few years of indoor working now and its softened me up quite a bit.That and getting older,and then theres the arthritis.... ::) ;D ;D
Im glad its of interest to some people though.Im far from being an expert,but hopefully that will give a slightly different perspective, particularily to others who would like to have a go. :y

Told you it wasn't HG ;) And I told the OP to get another garage ::)

Don't bother with another comp tester... Your results are good enough  :y

Cheers Paul, a more experienced opinion agreeing with my own helps with the confidence. :y
Im just a bit disappointed that the job is going slower than expected,but the weather etc. - its to be expected I suppose. :-\
Breaking them is easier. ::) ;D

Yep - you and others advised on page one of this thread that it was very unlikely to be head gasket. :y
