I have the 514 on a motor stand....there is no way I can warm it up at this time....so, I was wanting to do a leak down test to see what shape it is in instead of spending big bucks if I didn't need to at this time....What would be some acceptable percentages?....

Not sure if it's right or not, but I have always ran my leakdown tests on a cold engine and I have still gotten the accepted "5% or less" numbers that way.
