I'd be really interested in buying this as well, or a cheat sheet video on how the interals of this are set up.

You guys are really making this more complicated than it needs to be. Really simple, Just purchase the by-pass plate, drill and tap a 1/8" pipe thread. The hardest part is getting the hole centered in the by-pass. You may need to drill the by-pass ports a little deeper to reach the center of the by-pass plate.

As I show, use an Inglese liquid filled low pressure gauge. Your pressure will be on the low side at 1-3 lbs. The high pressure gauge shown may not even read a pressure that low.

I will be at the National. If interested I will share exactly how I did mine and it is on the car.

BTW Dave's price is very fair as the parts will come close the what he may charge and you will save messing around with doing the work your self.

Have a great day,

Cecil

Actually YES! I had a terrible set back as my machinist buddy and good friend suddenly died right after christmas, so had to shop out another machinist to make the plates, he is working on them right now, so once in hand will start building a few units to sell, Been a bad year.

Dave - Sorry to hear about your friend. As we are getting older, it seems like more and more friends are dropping "out", so to speak. That is why is pays to overlook differences and hold on to the ones we have. Good Luck. - Seth

My condolences.
Just attended a memorial service today for one of my neighbors.
In the last twelve months, I have lost 14 people that I have known .
At my age, one or two a year is maybe expected, but 14 ! ? ! ? Too much!
I call it my "Black Year". sad smiley
