    Does any one know what kind of pressure these produce, i am wonder if is of any use on my 'project TD' engine.

    also what kind of volume of air is produced from a ac pump? would it be enough for a 'blow off' kind of air line?


    cheers

    Dunno about the a/c but I read somewhere you can run a hydraulic winch off the pas pump.

    im not sure exactly how much pressure but in my last car ( pug 405 ) one of the metal pipes had broke so i tried repairing it using hydraulic pipe rated to 300 psi , it was fine at tick over but as soon as i tried turning the wheels the pipe just burst :eek: . one of the diesel fitters in work reckons about 500 psi is a good guess .when you say ac pump do you mean the heater blower or the ac pump cos the ac pump only pump fluid so it wont give any volume of air out

    Cheers for that Daren, what about volume, do you think it will power a hydralic ram? and give 20ton + Pressure?

    i did mean the a/c pump but after tests today i dont think lack of compressed air will be a problem :eek:

    it all depends on the size of your the master and slaves cylinders how fast it will work cos im pretty sure it will give the pressure if set up correctly cos can use large hydraulic presses that give over 20 tons of force and they are only powered buy a hand lever so a power steering pump should do it no problems of course it wont be the fastest ram in the world cos the pump wont put out a large volume . hope that helps
