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).
