Ok the slow down is just what it sounds like. It is a valve that makes it so you can adjust how fast the car drops.


Now as for your dumps. When you put the dump (cartridge) into the dump block (aluminum part) dont over tighten them.

I usually screw mine in by hand till they are tight, then I get a wrench and only turn them another 3/4 turn.

If you over tighten them you can distort the dump and it wont be able to work correctly.

Just a thought for you :cool:

Ok what you need to figure out is, why is the vehicle not coming up?

Dont worry about the dumps right now. All the dump does is alw the car to come back down.

If it is not lifting, you could have a backwards check valve, or you could have a bad pumphead seal and or pumphead.


Is the motor on the pump thats not working any good?
