    You have to find one with a schraeder valve otherwise it will not work correctly(I don't know if these have them or not).

    Why do you need the schraeder valve?

    The Lisle would be a good bet. Didnt look at the price though. I get alittle anal when it comes to buying tools that I may need years on down the road. This is my CTer. Over 30 years old and used mainly to test stroker motors on Harleys.

    But then alot of my tools like that are old and still funtion good. This 1 is over 50 years old and still reads right. Know what it is?

    I am on my second actron from advanced auto. My first one died on me, but I bought another because it was so cheap.
