Used it to hoover and recharge my F150. It pulled round 28 inches in lower than 2 minutes. Sealing it off, the gauges did not leak. The one damaging is that these are multi-pressure gauges for various functions, so the quantity of house on the gauge from “0” to “30” inches of vacuum is extremely small so you can’t get a extremely strong studying. Nevertheless, it was adequate. Pulled to 30 inches inside 3 or 4 minutes and held it there for 45 minutes.
The pump got here empty and with a bottle of oil, which you solely wanted about 75% of the bottle to fill it. Learn directions rigorously.
The R134a connections labored and sealed completely. As a way to connect this to a can adapter – it’s essential purchase these individually. I bought FJC 6030 can faucet, with FJC 6015 adapter for the ACME to hose adapter.
This equipment paid for itself on the primary use. Even when the pump dies down the street as a result of these chinese language no-name pumps are low cost…. it is going to be value it. Neither the gauge/manifold equipment nor the pump is “heavy use” and sure wouldn’t maintain up in an actual store atmosphere, however you might be paying a 3rd the worth.
Since this would possibly not be a really generally used merchandise, I like that storage bag to maintain it clear and dust-free.
