It should be fine unless, like the other post said, you screwed up the threads for the recharge fitting or bent it so that the stem has a slow leak. But regardless, be carefull with that thing. It can handle a fall pretty well but keep in mind you have a mini-bomb in your hands with possibly over 300-pounds of force in it. That's good enough to 'cause a nice tib/fib fracture with knee dislocation and some serious muscle trauma in that leg. :)

PRESSURE

it goes into the oil tank
So it blows up your tank with the pressure. :0[/b][/quote]
i would guess so..

heres a question for you guys with juice..




why do you run pipe plugs in the tanks instead of breathers?


is it because of the turbulance in the tank as the fluid goes in and out of it?

A lot of people use plugs because they keep their tanks under pressure. Then again, some run plugs and have no idea why... only that that's the way "their boys" run theirs.

I, personally, still use breather caps.

cool, does any oil slosh out? Or do you have them on standoffs?

the whole pipe plug in the tank thing has never made sense to me, for a regular street pump with no frills...

No, no, no. I couldn't have that. :) No fluid escapes. I keep my fluid level about a half-inch above the pump head and my slowdowns aren't "wide open."
