    Polaris1996 sl780 pop-off test

    Hi,

    If I just rebuilt 3 carbs using Mikuni kits, do I need to check pop-off pressures? If so, do I need $50 tester or is there another way??
    Want to get this thing in the water.

    Thanks.

    Gary

    You should perform the test. Any device that will slowly pump up the pressure in the carb that has an appropriate gauge can be used. The $50 model just makes it simple...... as you Pump up the carb, watch the pressure rise, when it falls sharply, the max pressure prior to the decline in pressure is your pop off.

    Thanks for the quick response. I'll dig something up or buy the gauge.

    Thanks, Gary

    I've used a ball pump from Target before I got the pop offf gauge.

    You're really looking for consistency across all 3 VS. exact pressure when using something else as a pop off tester.
