    LMAO!

    Forget the pump AND get back to work...on the washers (while you wait on the kit).

    Carbs don't need the pump to be primed unless you let them sit so long that the bowl goes dry. OEM systems may or may not prime when you turn them on. It depends on the type of RPM relay, etc., i.e.,...

    Ah, I thought you only suspected a hack. Anyway, there was a factory mod that had a tubular fuse near the brake pedal for the brake lights. IIRC, that was before your VIN, but someone may have done...

    If it is 0.0psi, you can assume it is probably contaminated (with air). Big difference than "you don't see at least 70 psi".
    Technically, if it quit working because of a minor leak then you checked...

    I've seen several Ds that would 'prime' the pump when flashing the high beams. Cycling the switch, bumping the starter, charger/jumper cables...can do it too.
    I'd ignore that for now and disconnect...

    If you are sure your connections etc. are good, it must be the gauge. In that case, I'd buy a gauge or isolate the gauge and run it with two dedicated wires (fed by the Aux 2 relay's feed).

    YW!

    Yep, that would be "extreme". :deviltail:


    Not really. That's only true if the charge is at least 70F, E.G., at 60F, R12 will be 57.7psi. Adding would over charge it. And, you must...

    If the system is at ambient temperature (engine not ran for hours), checking the pressure with the engine off can tell you if the charge is extremely low. This seems to be the case here because,...

    My D didn't have enough clearance for the new style pump no mater which way it was turned. I didn't want vibration to wear a hole in either one. I wound up laying a 1/2" x 6" disk of wood on top of...

    FWIW-
    I'm not thinking Michael would be satisfied with his gauge showing 11.5 + 0.3 = 11.8V with the AC on.
    Seems using the two dedicated wires mentioned would have the highest reading available...

    That's a good idea...bypasses all of the old connections etc. You might do the same thing for the positive side (but taken off of the (W)hite wire feeding Aux Relay 2 instead of the battery).

    Corrosion or any bad connection along the volt gauge's circuit, ground or feed, could cause the gauge to read low. (Wiggle the IP plugs, check the fuse/socket.)
