I tried using a adjustable 12 volt compressor, but by the time it shuts off it builds up to 25 pounds. Maybe use a 15 foot hose and cut it shorter and shorter till I get the pressure I want, haha. Seriously though, I could rig up my compressor with regulators but thought there would be a easier way.
    Have a Mityvac 8500 and was a little hesitant at first when purchasing it. However, I discovered from Andy that it is somewhat meant to be an annual routine thing to check. Maybe this is for people who are obsessive, but never hurts to check the wastegate crack pressure every now and again.

    I have used mine countless times. Great investment, especially using it on others and seeing when an actuator is getting weak.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I haven't used my Mityvac vacuum pump in years so I couldn't see buying a new vacuumn/presure pump. Per Mega, I ordered a blood pressure cuff kit from eBay, $10.65, and will modify as needed.

    I like it! Plus the gauge chosen probably has better resolution/accuracy than the Mitivac unit.

    that gauge and brass fittings probably cost more than the mightyvac but It is a multi purpose built pressure/ flatulator pump
