Just for fun, I was thinking of trying two pumps to the front, one for flow and the other for pressure.

#6 at 72 volts
and
#13 at 60 volts,

any thoughts on this?

85 Regal, 8 cylinder

That would be the same as going with a gear that is in between them. Like Hustle said #9's 60 volts would work the same way.

I think he is trying to have 2 pumps but only to clown with one and play daily with the other. In other words, he will not be useing them at the same time. Am I right, Hydros?

the only way to use both at the same time would be to tee both of them to a adex run a single hose to the front and tee it off at the front cylinders that way the pressure would remain equal

What I was getting at is, some folks here say that using a #13 is not suggested, so I'm guessing two #13 would be twice as bad. (maybe not).

I would be running a double pumper to the front, both at the same time.

I'm trying to find something that a everyday driver can get some high inches and not clogg up the trunk with all those batteries.

Id use 2 #7s or at least 120 yes 120 volts for the #13s 120v is only 10 batts, not that much in anything bigger than a G body

when you run 2 pumps to the front with one hose can one pump over fill with fluid?

Yes it can. You would need to use a whammy tank, basically two blocks share the same tank, or, you can add a third tank above the two for gravity feed.

You might even be able to return to one tank through the block, then from the filler attach a hose to the return at the the other pumps block, and then use a long vent at the filler of that last tank. (this I would not advise for any kind of hopping, and this idea would need some refinement).

Thats what I was hoping for !!! lol Using two different pumps at the same time would cause some weird effects.

Hell yeah, hitting back bumper with one pump is far more respectful than using 2 to the front, not to mention some fools use 4 to the front, that makes them lose respect, rather than earn it.



Single pump, back bumper, drivable, no lead.


NOW THATS RESPECTABLE.

Hey thanks guys.

I like the idea of hitting back bumper with one pump. Has anyone here did that with 4-6 batteries, and no heavy duty frame reinforcing or mods?

na don't get me wrong 2 gates are ok but if you can do it with one like ogcaddy said you will earn more respect on the streets to me 2 pumps just makes more shit
you have to worry about burning up are blowing something apart but mixing those gears does work alright you will have to use an x block to balance the pressure and volume out on the system

RUNNING TWO #13'S IS O.K , BUT YOU NEED TO RUN 14 BATTERIES(7+7) OR MORE TO WORK RIGHT
