    Does anyone in, or near, Bristol have a k-jet fuel pressure tester that I could borrow or hire for a reasonable fee?

    I'm happy to pay a deposit to ensure it's returned undamaged or will use at your place if you prefer.

    thanks

    I'm in Oxfordshire, sorry; but I'm sure there was someone else in Bristol having one.

    (Brookster: Apologies regarding PM - will get back to you later.)

    A Copy and Paste from my power thread Down on Power thread

    Using the information on ClubGTi HERE I tested my Fuel control and system pressure.

    Called at my local Pirtek store to buy the necessary fittings.

    Connected up the test gauge / valve
    [​IMG]

    Started Engine, when settled, saw thew Control pressure which should be 48psi (3.3Bar). Mine was 58psi (4Bar). This is BAD, higher actually means LESS fuel, which is what I was seeing on my plugs compared to before.
    [​IMG]

    I then closed the Valve to check the System pressure
    [​IMG]

    This should be around 5 Bar, mine was almost 6 !
    [​IMG]

    I made a short video to show how to do it (I`ll add this to my build thread later).
    [​IMG]

    To adjust the Control pressure, I need to adjust to Warm Up Regulator, however, I tried adjusting the WUR and the adjusting allen key made NO difference.

    I later sourced another WUR, that adjusted properly and I was able to set the pressures are required.:thumbup:

    NigeP Would it be possible to post a shopping list if you will to make this with parts from pirtek?

    Also with rough price of the lot?

    I would love to make one of these but not sure of sizes, threads etc so If i have the list that you bought then I can just show them that :)

    Thanks

    I know this is a really old thread, but I'm looking for the test equipment too.... and just so happen to also be in Bristol.

    Did a shopping list of components ever get put together, or anyone know where to get the kit reasonably priced. Seen sets on eBay for 70 ish, but that's more of a mechanics universal kit with about 80% of the parts surplus I'm sure.
