Flying Dragon PCP Pump Tips
FLYING DRAGON HIGH PRESSURE HAND-PUMP TIPS!
Here are just a few Tips for those that are new to Air-Gun High Pressure Hand Pumps or HPP:
There is some minor assembly involved, just try not to over torgue anything when tightening and be sure to tighten the psi guage using the flats of the bolt located directly beneath the psi gauge!
Although today's HPP seals or O-rings are designed to withstand high temperatures, it is still best not to pump too quickly between strokes! Wait at least (1) full second after completing both the up and down strokes!
First, be sure to tighten the pressure relief bleed screw all the way in.
When you start to fill your FD-PCP tube, you will notice a large increase in pressure on your first few strokes. This is because your are first filling the base of the HPP and the HPP hose, but once you start filling the tube you will see a significant decrease of how much pressure you actually start building-up, because you are now filling a much larger area in the tube.
Keep in mind that you are filling on both the up and down stroke.
The higher the pressure, the more effort it will take on your part on each stroke, this is because of the pressure building up inside the tube and is a good sign!
Take a break! If you feel that the pump may be getting hot or you're simply feeling a bit tired from pumping, its perfectly ok to fill the tube in increments!
The great news is that the Flying Dragon-PCP requires only 1500-psi, which is the recommended max operation fill amount. I'm 5'-8" tall, 176-pounds, 44-years of age and out of shape, but find filling the Flying Dragon-PCP using the Flying Dragon HPP to be a breeze!
Now, once you've finished filling the tube, its time to PROPERLY disconnect!
You do so by making sure that the base or bottom of the HPP is on a surface that WILL NOT blast dust, dirt or debris into the pressure relief valve or bleeder valve when releasing the pressure, which should be done by rapidly turning the bleeder screw into the open position as it helps to rid the pump of any moisture that could've built-up in the pump and will allow you to remove the hose from the foster fitting or air inlet fitting.
Now, disconnect the hose, cover the fitting on the end of the hose and put cover on the Air-Inlet Fitting.
That's it, just be sure to try and keep your Flying Dragon High Pressure Pump in a dirt, dust or debris free environment, especially when out in the field.
Remember not to pump too rapidly!
