One of the things for guys to consider when buying a flow tool is the type of gauges being used. Gauges are rated a couple of ways and most are rated by the % of accuracy as well as the accuracy at what points in the scale. Some are rated by each 1/3 of the scale being most accurate in the middle, and some thru the entire scale.

The gauge we use is .25% accurate thru the entire scale. This is one of the reasons ours cost a little more then some. It also has a removeable face to reset zero. In this picture it's off zero because it's laying on it's back for the pic.



Just thought I'd share as well so maybe it would help others understand why the little 1 1/2 gauges aren't a good idea...  Thanks, SJ

I'm glad you posted that Steve. It reminded me to post the pic of the other two I was working on. The one still could use a valve, but I just pieced it back together with stuff that was laying around.

That gauge being under the zero as far as it is would concern me from the start ????    Huh?  SJ

I was told it had to do with the gauges range being so close at the low part. It will be checked against my other gauges before use.

EDIT:
The gauge is rated as a 3-10# unit. It was supposed to be calibrated at 6.5# (1/2 scale). Will post up any variances I find. If this gauge doesn't work out, I also have a regular scale 0-15# unit (same size).

Turns out that gauge was off by nearly 1#. The other two were almost dead on with each other.

Here's a quick video we put together to try and help guys on flowing fuel pressure...

Hope this helps guys out.. Thanks, SJ

Something I ran across on the YB. I've ran similar tests, just not to those extremes.

Here's some info I have shared before from a quick little test...
 
Set the baseline on the regulator @ 6.00 PSI.

Then I went down 20 numbers to a .053 (smaller hole creates a little more back pressure) and it read 6.25 PSI.

Then I went up 20 numbers to a .093 (larger hole creates less back pressure) and the gauge read 5.75 PSI.

Then went to a .020 and it read 6.5 PSI, and back up to a .123 and it read 5.5 PSI...

As I have told many others this is another reason to not change the flow jet. Or also why it's really not a big deal what you flow through as long as you stay with it.. Basically .020 numbers is only a .25 of a PSI... But it does change..


thanks, SJ
