It goes without saying, this place is incredible and appreciated. Like others have said previously, this forum absolutely ruined me, but in the best possible way. I truly appreciate the gold contained in this little corner of the internet.
Having said that, I have a few quick questions pertaining to my equipment.
First, I should mention that I purchased a Simpson 4240 (4200/4gpm) before landing here and realizing I should have spent that money on a proper, belt-driven machine. I totally get it and it’s absolutely in my plan for next spring when I hope to fully launch. But like many, I’m a hands-on learner and I’m completely okay with practicing technique with what I have now. After practicing on friends and family, and assuming I like it (which I’m sure I will), over the winter I will invest in all proper equipment so that I’m fully prepared for next season.
My question pertains to my 4240: What exactly do I need from Pressuretek for proper ds? I see that some guys step everything down a notch for better pull? Any other odd parts necessary for the 4240 (what size qc’s, etc).
I like the jrod idea. So that with a GP high draw and I should be set, right? And do I need to cap off the factory pump’s injector? Some say yes, some say it doesn’t matter. If I do, what size plug do I need?
My unit is actually sitting in the next state over to me at a family member’s house, which I plan on picking up in my free time, soon, otherwise I could probably figure some of this out on my own. But if anyone familiar with the unit could guide me in the right direction, that would be super awesome as I’d love to be ready to go with all proper parts (and it would give me the chance to buy stuff online today )
In the mean time, I’ll continue burning 10 hours a day on this forum. Jeez. So addicting!
