944 Fool Pressure Chart...


Due to the fact that most technicians do not want to take the time to properly test the fuel pressure, I have developed the following fool pressure chart!!!!

With the engine running, either push in the test Schraeder valve or loosen the fuel line.

A: Fuel doesn’t come out = 0 psi.
B: Fuel hits the hood insulation = 5-8 psi.
C: Fuel squirts over fender = 10-15 psi.
D: Fuel splashes off the fenders, the hood insulation, and the repair bay next to the car = 25-30 psi.
E: Fuel sprays to the garage roof and all over the car = 30-50 psi.

Note: If the car starts on fire during the test, throw these instructions under the hood and run!!
75 914 - Undecided.
80 931 - Gone, but not forgotten.
72 914 - old toy- sold.
And a whole bunch of German scrap metal shaped like 924's.

Old enough to know better, and stupid enough to do it anyway!
