  • weak oil stream on Kustodian

    my pump was running at only 8 psi so i put a longer hose on and got it up to 20 psi. now I'm getting incesistant volume tests and the stream seems weak, any help would be great. thanks, Sid

    check the valve. You will need to disassemble it, make sure to not lose any of the washers! sometimes just a couple of strands of hair will make there way into the valave and cause a reduction in oil volume.

      Sid.....Page 9 of the Appendix in your manual will help if you haven't had to clean the valve before...BTW 20 psi is a little high, the 8 psi is closer to what you really want...

        8 PSI is too low. You should be between 10-20 PSI. I set all machines at 15.

        As for you issue, I would check the internal tank filter and in-line filter if you have one. If you have the in-line filter, it is suggested you eliminate it.

          I have a pheonix S(red) lane machine. Should I eliminate mine also. What is the purpose of doing this?

            The thick oils can clog them up. When Offence HV use to turn to snot on the bottom of the tank after awhile, they would clog very easily.

              I would eliminate the EXTERNAL in-line filter. The microns in the filter are too small. Once the filter traps any bit on debris, it creates a bottle neck effect and gets worse causing pressure and potentially output issues. The internal filter is enough to filter anything that may clog anything in the oil section.

                I have found teflon thread sealing tape pushed into the ports of the oil valves. This comes from unscrewing the fittings, reapplying the tape, and screwing them back into the valve. It is VERY difficult to see as some of the tape will stay in the threads in the valve body and get pushed into the plunger when screwing the fittings back into the valve. The threads should be chased with a small pointed probe bent at an angle on the very end to dislodge any tape left in the threads.

                  or you could narrow the width of the tape with a razor before you wrap the threads. that way the tip is clear but you still get a good seal.
                  When you know what to do, everything is easy.

                    Even though the tip is clear of tape, it is possible for some of the tape to become stuck in the threads after the fitting has been removed which gets pushed into the valve body upon inserting the fitting into the valve. If the threads are not chased, the fitting can push any tape left into the threads of the valve body.
