    Sounds like a job for dimensional analysis!

    We are quite figuratively a shop of monkies banging wrenches together like cymbals throwing fittings and 60% off the shelf hydraulic components like feces at frames and brackets we hand fabricate and weld.


    It's a tremendous amount of fun and very rewarding when bar room napkin drawings work. But when it doesn't.....:pout:

    Hmm, depends on what you draw on that bar room napkin. If its something like gallons/in^3*in^3/revolution*revolutions/minute you might get pretty close

    First chapter of the book I sent reviews the concept behind this type of problem and other pain in the ass unit conversions. Appendix one has unit conversions factors like 231in3 per gal etc that should be the only one you need for that problem

    Does anyone know if there is an easy way to check rear brakes without pulling the drum off? I'm starting to hear something sound funky like a light scrape/squeak as the tire goes around on the rear passenger side I think.

    Check the ebrake cable where it attaches to the brake drum. If you have any movement you may need new shoes. I had 275,000 on my 5lug axle and never changed the shoes.

    Cool that conversion gives what I want (I think) where RPM x displacement / 231 =GPM

    So having my gear pump with a fixed displacement of .56 in^3 at 1700rpm would yield 4.12GPM. Which coincides with my test stand flow meter reading 4GPM. Therefore with science I can prove my boss bought the wrong pump and it's not something in my plumbing or valve body causing it to underperform


    He wants 12GPM:laughing:

    Sounds right to me. That seems like wayyy too small a pump to make use of the power of the motor though and that is where my knowledge ends

    Doing the opposite math shows that I need a displacement of 1.63 in^3 to achieve 12GPM at 1700rpm. Going through Casappa data sheets they make that exact pump so now I can offer bossman a solution on how we can fix the output without having to run through a shitload of unnecessary tests just because "he needs to see it with his own eyes"

    Want to buy a 1/2" impact socket set. Shallow, regular, or deep for doing work on the Tacoma?
