Simple pop tester

I had a extra porta power laying around. It has a 1/4 inch npt in the outlet . Removed the hose and installed a 1/4 inch Tee for the gauge. Filled it with D2 and pumped away.

The details would be better shown with some pics.

A few of our Members have done the same but you have might be different enough to warrant a better look.

Some of us don't know what a porta power is.

Sounds like something you use to light up a porta-potty....

Oh, okay. In Canada we just call them something like ram kits or portable body kits. But not porta power

Kind of overkill to test an injector, no?

I have made one of these, it's a pop tester for when you clean/rebuild injectors.
