Pump pressure is adjusted at the pump. There is a nut or screw next to the water inlet that is used to change the discharge pressure. This assumes that your pump is running. Your pressure of 2-3 bars sounds like the pump is not running at all. Put your hand on the motor to determine if it is running. If it is not running then that is the problem you need to diagnose. If it is running then it could be the pump or coupling.

Hi, If the tool doesn't have a depth of drive control (Found either by the trigger or, on the safety element) you can get around this by adjusting the air pressure from the compressor. Just make sure that you have plenty of scrap timber to experiment as, when the adjustment has been made, the line pressure is still as it was. Firing a nail to cycle the tool once will allow the new pressure to be the norm. (If this makes sense?)

Water pressure is too low. How to adjust?

If water/pump pressure is below 9 bar, then you will have to adjust the pump. Remove the right side panel, pump is usually located there, find the big brass head with 2 water lines coming to it, on the side of it is an adjustment nut and or screw depending on pump model. Adjust tighter gives more pressure.

How do i adjust the hear shocks for pillian weight?

This is directly from the 2008 VRSC Service Manual:

Make sure both shocks have the same preload.

The average weight solo rider might use the extended spring
preload position (adjustment setting 1 or 2).

1. Place the shock absorber adjustment tool around the lower
collar of the shock absorber.

2. Turn the collar clockwise (toward higher numbers) to
increase the preload or pressure.

Use the adjustment setting numbers as a reference for equal
adjustment of shock absorbers on both the right and left side
of the motorcycle. A heavy solo rider might require additional
preload or pressure (adjustment setting 3).

Adding a passenger may require maximum preload (adjustment
setting 5).

Turn the collar counterclockwise to decrease the preload or

Hi Ι repair 2T engine from celica TA22 and i want the adjustment for valve clearance and distributer point gapthanks for your time

right as i remember the points adjustment is 19/22 th with the mitsubishi heavy industries distributor ,now as these old fashioned distributors do wear then make sure the points are checked with a dwell meter afterwards which should be around 55% ,as for the tappets 12 inlet and 14/15 exhaust will suffice ,but when adjusting allow for wear under the arm where it strikes the valve ,what i do is adjust the tappets by the rule of 9 then start engine up with rocker cover off and sort of feel any that are noisey and re adjust them to allow for this wear ,Now to adjust the tappets use the rule of 9 ,this is as follows -1 down adjust 8 -----2 down adjust 7----3 down adjust 6------4 down adjust 5 and so on .When its up and running and running nice then for the idle make sure the CO2 is below .2% by adjusting the air blled screw on the bottom of the cab in line with the butterfly although it will run better on idle if CO2 is slightly higher but the emmisions test says it has to be below the specified figure .

How do I adjust shut off pressure on an Ingersoll Rand T30 2340? Right now it shuts off at 175psi and I would like it around 125. Thanks!!

The best way to go about the task of adjusting the pressure switch is to remove the cover to switch and note the brand/model number. Sometimes instruction are under cover of switch. With switch information, look for mfg. instructions. You will most likely see one or two springs with lock nuts. Do not turn them yet. Most pressure switches are sold with factory adjustment and are sold in pressure ranges. For two stage compressors as yours, the pressure is usually factory set at much higher (150-175) pressures than single stage which is usually about 120 -125. If you change the pressure setting it will also change the differential cut on pressure. The factory will actually use different springs to achieve desired pressures and are color coded. There are too many different brands of switches to recommend how to change pressure setting. You may discover that you can only change the pressure just a small amount (+or -15-20psi ). If you find the information about your switch, make sure that you count the turns exactly so that you can return to factory settings if things go wrong. You can extend the life of the comperssor by lowering the pressure as more amperage /heat is produced to achieve higher pressures. Good luck

The back burner doesnt consistently light up.

If the flame doesn't go completely around the burner, ther is an obstruction at the outlet holes. Make sure all outlet are clear of dirt, rust,or any material. Even water will block the outlets.
