Hydrostatic Pressure

Recommended Posts

rich_kildow

With my recent addition of a Johnny Bucket, I'm curious what my hydrostatic pressure is at. I'm familiar with the shims from adding a hydrolift and not to go over a certain amount, 800 PSI, I believe.

Would any hydraulic pressure gauge with an appropriate fitting work for this? And where is the best/easiest way to tee into the system to get this reading?

You can read both the charge and "lift" pressures from the hi pressure port.

And BLT, great post; I didn't know it was available.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
