Intercooler Pressure Testing
This one is for my friend Chad at Jet Ski Unlimited. We sat around one afternoon thinking how in the world could we test for a leaking intercooler.
Well well my friend Chad, I think I out witted you on this one or robbed ya.
So here is the TOP SECRET way to test your intercooler.jk
First get a Leak Down tester.
Some rubber hose and hose clamps.
Loop A to B. Took that one from Chad.
Then slip a hose onto C and then your Leak Down tester to it. Clamp hoses tight to ensure no leaking.
Add air untill you get to 20psi and never go over 30psi. Set it there and monitor it for a good hour. Make sure it holds pressure. This teats for pin holes or slite cracks too.
Easy as one two three once you have the intercooler out but can easily be done in the ski too.
