Would either of these work to adjust the pumps on a 2390?
I spent the past several months looking for someone locally and struck out
Bill, I looked at the NH units you are refering to. They have no means of restricting the flow and no pressure gage, it is a simple GPM gage unlike the professional ones we use have. Ours at the shop is electronic and has a flow restrictor knob that we can vary the pressure on the system and I'm sure that is required to test the PFC system. IIRC there are additional shutoff valves and hosing required to do a factory type evaluation and you will be working with 2000+ pressure on the outlets.
Your test hoses must have a wide safety margin from the test pressures. You will need a factory service manual with the procedure and pictures. It is not a simple hookup and test and you're done, there are many steps involved. If you have a hose rupture in close proximity you can be injured at worse, and get a good dreching of hot oil.
Not to discourage you but most who have this expensive tooling are factory trained in both the procedure and the safety aspects.
