OK   Jim   here she goes.:

I took a banjo inlet fitting  , and stacked it under the outlet banjo. Using
it for a line to Gauge.

If you are close to west coast and you pay the postage I will lend you my

To fit two banjoes requires a longer center bolt.---piece of cake.

A gauge ?    --- I got two gauges out of a factory dumpster  --- off a 
big Foxboro or Honeywell  valve.    I use one for monitoring Turbo and
one for monitoring pump internal pressure.  Looks like 2 " diameter gauges.
Mounted on a piece of sheet aluminium they fit nicely in crack between
hood and body close to windscreen.

Most fellas here know how to stretch center bolt , but if anyone has problems I shall
 send a picture.

Here are the pressures Jim :     500 RPM     2.4 to 3.0  bar .
                                              750             3.5 to 4.1
                                             1000            4.6 to 5.2

If those numbers check out   the pump will pass.   These  numbers are Pump rpm.

PS:  we clear the smoke.   (as a team).
