I have one but I havent pressurized the tank yet. I would say to bleed the lines and everything as usual with a normal pump and then make sure the tank is full (with the front down) and then make sure the tank plug is tight and start adding nitrogen in small increments to whatever you want your pressure to be. You are supposed to discharge the pressure from the piston after hopping or whatever but you should be fine as long as you make sure to discharge it before ever messing with the pump.

Sounds cool. Run 84 - 96 volts to the nose, and 150 - 200 psi nitrogen in the Piston Pump... I know from experiance that on a #9 head, 150 psi is the ultimate, but that was with #6 hoses and fittings, I think you could add up to 200 psi and get even more swing since you run the #11. I'm putting together a #13 head pistion pump setup right now, #8 hoses and 1/2" fittings all the way, 10 batts, we'll see how that goes... :biggrin:
