Thanks,Well it works like really any other sync tool. I liked the Mercury ones better but I can't get those anymore so I'm kinda stuck with those. They come with instructions on how to put the check valves and hoses and they are exactly like the old mercury sync tools in use.
why would you need to calibrate it?...all cells are seperate so I suspect because of the fluids not being the same like mercury is?I order/used that one not too long ago. It's a good tool, supplied with all the instructions you need. My only bitch about it is that they tell you to "calibrate" the tool every time you use it.... but it isn't hard to do that at all with the way the tool is set up.
As far as function it works just like an old mercury tool. The contrast is nice and high, and the anti-flutter check valves work as advertised. I used to have the old mercury Motion Pro tool, and this one is just as good (and less fragile!)
Thanks for the reply. The way I am reading the Calibration is you need to calibrate all tubes based on 1 Vacuum, so you hook all 4 tubes via the 4 way splitter to 1 vacuum off the throttle body and adjust the screws on top of the manifold housing to make them all even in fluid level. Then at that point you know any variance in vacuum will show TRUE when they are all hooked up separately....it has something to do with the gravity of the fluid itself, if I'm not mistaken. If I read the instructions correctly, the "output" accuracy of the guage will be affected by different/higher levels of vacuum,so they ask you to calibrate it to each new vacuum source. I didn't really pay much attention to the explanation as to why when I did it... I just calibrated the thing and marched on. It's easy enough to do. The tool does not give you any sort of in/Hg reading...... it's just a comparative vacuum tool.
yes but with this Unit there is NO mercury just coolant like fluid and not harmful to the engine if it gets sucked in at low quantities...this is not Mercury so just saying and no Mess :dontknow:My first carb sync tool was the older version of that one.We used it at the shop for about a year.Worked good for the money,but was a pain.If it fell over the mercury could come out.Then you had to get a refill bottle of mercury.If someone over rev ed the bike while you were checking it at 3000 rpm(carb stumbled) it could possible suck the mercury into the engine.
I sold it to a friend of mine.It was good for someone working out in their garage, but not weekly shop use.
So I got a digital Vacuum tester from K&L supply. Kowa Seiki Co. model # KEK-55-64.It is one of the best pieces of equipment I've ever bought.Hook up the leads to the battery and vacuum lines and your ready to go.Very accurate,stable and no mess.
