one cylinder at TDC at a time. add psi to leak down tester, calibrate to zero then connect to hose/fitting that is in cylinder. Read the gauge showing % of loss, do not focus on the psi number. There may be other testers that work differently, however mine works likes this. I loosened the cam towers just in case my valves were so tight that the cam(part w/o lobe) was putting pressure on the buckets thus keeping them slightly open giving me a false reading.

OK,, same as mine,, your just only turning it to get to TDC not spinning like compression test.. :) Cool..

I always use 100 PSI on leakdown, makes the % easier to do in my head.. LOL

Freedom is a delicate thing.
More easily lost than gained.
