Some people say 2, some people say 3, some people say 4.
The guage usually stops moving after 3.
No matter how many pulls you try its going to get you in the ballpark. Just do an even amount per cylinder.

Pull till it stops moving.. (pull all the plugs out while doing it, and throttle at WOT)

If you have electric start that will read 10+ psi more than pulling by hand.

how many pulls should you do to get the most accurate reading when doing a compression test
pull till it doesnt go up any more thats what i did. make sure they are fairly quick pulls[thumb]
