    Crack pressure

    Got back last week from NW Raptor Rally, Memorial Day crowds and getting ready for NW UTV takeover. I went to adjust my crack (OK, STOP) today and realized my Mityvac doesn't do pressure. What tool or model number are you guys using? #8255 or is there something better? TIA.

    Would you like to share? I can't see spending $65+ for something I'll use once or twice in the remainder of my life. 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.

    already did in a thread here. Use that search function and or google and you will find it. Blood pressure bulb and some hardware store fittings.

    that reminds me I lent that out to Andy WSTP (who stands to pee) and im not sure I got it back yet.
