In such great shape too, for only $40 that's a steal, for sure.

I would have to turn them into pajamas so they would get covered in grease :lol:




Then you could dream about working on Mercurys in bed, as if you already didn't.

How long do you let it hold pressure? vacuum? How much pressure / vacuum do you give it?


yes I am happy with it. 1 hour. Not much at all, about 7 lbs for this LU. If there is any doubt that a shaft will not hold a seal "pitting", I put a speedy sleeve in. This tool is good for troubleshooting were a leak is coming from.
