how long can a vacuum pump run


Ok I should explain - My micron gauge says high pres even at 15, so I know that went bad. So I was stuck using the manifold gauges. . . But boy did I find a fix . . It only cost me 600 bucks. When I went back the next day with a new micron gauge and the "attached pic" I pulled down to "30" in less than 5 sec and down to 500 in less than 5 min. This thing freaking rocks!

Once again thanks for all the help

Nice kit.

Retest your micron gauge. 15" mercury, is still a positive pressure(about 1/4lb absolute).

I think it was getting down to 500 and my gauges would not get there. I did go back and look and what appeard to be 15 - 18 very easily could have been 25 - 28 or so. I think it may be cheaper to get me eyes fix than fix my equipment. Because of this I am looking at going digital, but that is another post.

You get the right digitals, and you'll wonder why you waited so long.
