I just juiced my 81 caddy. I got a 2 pump 4 dump set up. 8 switches. I can't control each individual wheel with a switch since I only have 2 pumps and it's "sharing juice." One of my homeboys said that he has a 2 pump set up and that he can control each individual wheel and that I should look on some sites to look at the hydraulic set ups. What's going on here? Can you control each wheel with 2 pumps w/o having another wheel pop up too?

I think he has more then 4 dumps in total for the 2 pumps

does anyone have a picture of a 8 dump manifold? actually what do the extra dumps do? i would guess they close off certain lines but i'm not sure, and how do you plumb something like that?

I have had this argument with others before. People tell me that they can do individual corners on a 2 pump 4 dump set up.

The fact is it is not possible, unless the car is raised all the way up.

With the car raised all the way up, then you can drop any corner and raise it back up because the other corner that is running off of the same pump is already raised up.

Dont believe what your homie is telling you. If he is so positive that he can do it, then go see his ride and let him show you. But just so you know it is not possible.

You could do it if you had a 4 dump manifold on each pump. But nobody with a 2 pump 4 dump setup can lift and lower just one corner.

If we could what would be the point of running a 4 pump setup? For looks or to take up more trunk space?

Also if you could control individual corners there would be no need for running 3 pumps or more when using a chain bridge. With just 2 dumps on a single pump running a chain bridge, you wouldnt be able to lift one side while you dump the other side because the fluid would just get pumped through the pumphead through the open dump and right back into the tank. The fluid takes the route of least resistance.

I hope this info will help you some, if you need more help just let us know. Also welcome to Lay it Low-Rob

What you are saying, makes sense, but is not true. I have seen plenty of cars that can pause on 3 with 2 pumps (hence dropping 1 corner)

What does pausing on 3 have to do with my last statement? And what is not true about my statement?

Agreed, ALOW1 is absolutely correct, the discussion wasnt about pausing on 3.

And for the record, Caddy's cant pause on 3 by dumping a corner anyways... not unless they have about 10+ batts and 400 lbs of lead or sand in each corner :biggrin:

Double agreed. Especially about the raising the car and dropping one corner. I've heard several people say that is individual control when it is in fact not.

The point was about raising each wheel individually not standing 3.

The only way with 2 pumps 4 dumps is to add manual cutoffs (slowdowns) or additional dumps (then it wouldn't be 2pump4dump)
