What size leak down tester adapter for om616?

I ordered a compression tester for my car today but I want to do leakdown as well. Google didn't bring up anything obvious and I don't/won't do enough cars to justify snap-on. Can anyone steer towards a leak down tester with an adapter that will work on my 240d?

Thanks,

Did you try the seach on this site ? There are some good threads including pictures....sometimes they are included in a Compression test thread... but should still show with a test.... also try ' alternative' spellings like ' leek' or ' leakdown' as one word... etc.. sometimes a good mechanic can be 'dictionary challenged' ...

Here is a hint at a direction on the net... Smokey was the first big name Hot Rodder I read about suggesting this test.... way back in the stone age...
