Pistion Gauge Question

Unread postAuthor: elitesniper » Wed Jan 02, 2008 7:30 pm

Hey guys i have a question about the gauges on the pistons well if you attach the guage on where the exhaust area is instead of the chamber area will the psi's be the same as if you added it on the chamber?

Wow, isn't your tee only 1.5"?

It will work well, but a tad over-kill :D

Mine's in a 2" tee.

Yeah, but where's your fill valve?

And are you just going to bolt it on and have the piston in the pipe at the end?

Ah okay, pilot volume would be a bit big but your sprinkler valve takes good care of that :twisted:
