WHATS UP LIL. I HAVE A QUESTION I HAVE A 2 PUMP 4 DUMP CCE SET-UP. I WAS JUST THINKING ON HOW TO POSE A 3 WITH IT.
RIGHT NOW I HAVE 1 PUMP FOR THE REAR AND 1 FOR THE FRONT.
I WAS THINKING IF I PLUMED IT SO THAT 1 PUMP WOULD LIFT 1 SIDE AND THE OTHER PUMP THE OTHER SIDE, DUMPED JUST THE SIDES FOR THE BACK CYLINDERS AND THEN SHOT MY DRIVERS SIDE BACK UP WOULDN'T THAT BRING MY LEFT FRONT WHEEL UP???

IT SHOULD BE THE SAME PRINCIPAL AS A 3 PUMP 4 DUMP SET-UP. IT WOULD GIVE ME INDEPENDENT CONTROLL OF MY REAR CYLINDERS.
HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS AND DO YOU THINK IT WILL WORK?

the problem that i think you might run into is that your cylinders in the rear are 14" and the fronts are 8"... the fronts will fill up and the rear will only have about 8" of lift.. if you keep trying to lift the side to make the rear lift higher .. you are still trying to send fluid to the front.. which is full...

why don't you try raising just 1 cylinder and raise the front... take off the hose to one of the rear.. put it in a milk jug... and raise the rear.. only the one side will lift and the rest will go into the milk jug.. its a little ghetto.. but it's easier and faster then trying to replumb the whole thing just for a few pictures...

or quit being cheap and spend the 250 and get another pump.. :biggrin:

THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THAT IS IF YOU TAKE OFF ONE HOSE AND HIT THE SWITCH IT WON'T RAISE. IT WILL JUST SPIT FLUID UNTILL IT EMPTYS. ;) YOU CAN'T REMOVE A HOSE A EXPECT THE OTHER ONE TO FILL WITHOUT A ELECTRONIC CUTOFF AND IF I HAD THAT I WOULDN'T NEED TO PLUMB IT THIS WAY.
ANYONE ELSE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS???

BTW THE REAR SHOULD LIFT FIRST BECAUSE OF WEIGHT, SO WHEN THE FRONT FILLS THE ASS WILL ALREADY BE LOCKED.
SO IF I RUN IT TO THE SIDES, AND THE FRONT GETS LOCKED, IT "SHOULD" JUST SHOOT THE ASS UP..

Batteries, weight in the back is what makes your car stand 3, not just your pumps. You gotta have enough weight to make your car sit down. I think that it is pretty hard to get a 2 pump setup (without chains) to stand. If there is someone out there that has the ideal, you should open a shop, cause there are a bunch of people trying to do the same thing instead of just buying another pump.

you could use 2 more dumps for the rear. 2 to shut off flow so you could pump 1 stroke at a time. then the 2 original dumps to dump the car.

but y mess around with it and just get a 3 pump

Im putting manual lock levers(valves) on both of my rear cylinders to lift one at a time ( the only thing is I have to go around to the setup and close a lever by hand then juice up one cylinder. It's ok by me though. You could just get the 2 more dumps , Or get another pump . If that don't work then put some chains in there. 4 batts not much weight. ;)

i think that if you add another pump it would just be a whole lot easier and less you would have to worry about, just put two to the rear. with the set up you have weight should be the only thang holding you back from a monsterous three wheel. :cool:
