You can get a cheap leak down tester on ebay, it will work with a small compressor. Not high quality but good enough for the occasional job.

I was able to "make" a leak down tester using a compression tester and a few other parts. No gauge but it bled too fast to need one. Air going into the crankcase. Likely ring or piston. I'll get the head off soon and really see what I'm dealing with.
