Let the engine cool down. Pull all the spark plugs. Put the gauge on one cylinder and spin it over three times. Record the number. Repeat for all cylinders. All your cylinders should have about the same reading. Now do it again but before you put the gauge on squirt a little bit of oil into the cylinder. Record the results. If your numbers jumped way up then you have worn rings. It they only went up about 10-20 psi then it's normal wear. But if it jumps 30-60 psi then your rings need to be replaced. I also recommend disabling the fuel system while running the test so you don't fill the cylinders with fuel. It will give you more accurate results. Post your findings and I'll tell you how it looks
