Thats why I use a cover. Besides she was out spending $ which helps to keep her out of my hair.greengeeker said:Nice work . What did the missus think about the washing machine smelling like diesel and hydraulic oil?
People have been building these pop testers for years.Lug_Nut said:Black iron and brass? Teflon tape? Are the materials up to the pressure needed to pop? Concerns about tape fines getting to the tips?
And can the jack develop pressure needed to pop a 220 bar (220 x 14.5 = 3190 psi) needle off its seat? If the piston is 4 inches in diameter the amount of area is about 12.5 square inches. To make 24000 pounds of force (12 tons) will require pressurizing each of those 12.5 square inches to just over 1900 lbs. The pressure at the black iron pipe on top will be the same 1900 lbs, far less than the 3200 needed for a 220 bar injector.
I believe the internal safety will prevent that jack from developing the 18 tons of force needed to obtain 3200 psi hydraulic pressure needed to pop the injector.
Thats a dandy, where can I get one of those? One of the guys on another forum just found a "thimble" filter with a paper element, and placed it inside one of the fittings. Acutally pretty good.Herm TDI said:
I got mine from a small local airport. There are owner pilots that will be more than willing to help you. You can get a used filter and if you let them know that you will not be using it on an aircraft will back flush it and clean it for you for less than $20.00CoolAirVw said:Thats a dandy, where can I get one of those?
