The Pico WPS500X Adaptor Kit A enables you to use your WPS500X as a replacement for the gauge in a wide range of AST (and other Foster 12FST) pressure testing kits. This kit enables you to re-use your existing adaptors and still gain the advantages of seeing pressure activity in real time with the WPS500X.
The kit consist of a compression hose to use with various AST adaptor kits, such as dummy injectors and glow plugs. It also consists of a second adaptor for using the WPS500X to replace the original dial gauge in various AST testing kits.
The Pico PP970 converts the male Foster 2 series connector on the input of the WPS500X to either a male12FST connector with the short adaptor for use with your existing test kits or to a female 12FST using the supplied high strength compression hose for direct connection to your compatible compression adaptors. More details on Foster couplers is available from www.couplers.com
The Pico WPS500X Adaptor Kit B adaptor kit enables you to use your WPS500X as a replacement for a gauge in a wide range of aftermarket pressure testing kits (e.g. Sykes–Pickavant, Sealey, Laser and Draper kits). This kit enables you to reuse your existing adaptors and still gain the advantages of seeing pressure activity in real time with the WPS500X.
The kit comes with 2 separate adaptors. The Compression adaptor uses the Pico Standard compression hose (TA212 not included) to connect to your various third party dummy injector, glow plug or spark plug adaptors. The second adaptor is for using the WPS500X to replace the original dial gauge in aftermarket test kits for looking at items like coolant, oil, fuel pressures etc.
The Pico TA250 converts the male Foster 2 series connector on the input of the WPS500X to a male or, in conjunction with the Pico TA212 Standard compression Hose (not included), a female Rectus series 21 coupler.
The Pico standard compression hose must be used in conjunction with the appropriate adaptor for carrying out Engine Compression tests with the WPS500X.
Adaptors are available for the following spark plug thread sizes:
M10 short reach
M10 deep reach
M12 deep reach
M14 short reach
M14 deep reach
M16 for Ford triton style engines
M18 for older engines
Please ensure that the adaptor you select is the same thread size and no longer than the tip of spark plug you are replacing. While using a shorter adaptor than the spark plug you are replacing may produce results that are slightly low using one that is longer may damage your engine.
The High strength of the standard compression hose is designed to have the minimum possible damping effect on the observed waveform. Using an alternative more flexible hose will significantly degrade the measured waveform
