Apparently a Diesel pressure tool...?

file7.jpegfile6.jpegfile4.jpegfile3.jpegHi All,

I have had this tool for some time on the basis that "it will come in useful sometime..."

I have now arrived at the point where its time to move this onto someone who a) knows exactly what it is and b) can use it...

I have advertised it on Homeworkshop in the hopes that someone would see it and decide they knew what it was but no takers.

If anyone can tell me what it is - or even take it off my hands I would be very happy.

I believe it is a pressure sensor for fluids where the lamp under the red cover lights up at pressure "X", whatever that might be. Beautifully made and heavily chromed and looks almost unused - but maybe unused for a good reason!

BR
Simon

Wilmonda seem to make specialist tools for the motor trade ( see ***HERE*** ). No idea what this one is for though?

Several pics/vids on the net if you search on ‘goggle’. Must be some information there.

The one on eBay seems to be on the same table as Simons.

Hello,

it is a diesel injection pump timing tool (drop timing!) on "in-line" pumps

the banana plug connects to the end of the tool, the crocodile clip on a +bat. and the conical connector on an outlet of the pump

it is not "specific to PL

Ps, translation from the French Panhard club forum

It’s an oil and fuel pressure tester. There is one on EBay for £25

Thanks, I found some things from the Panhard club too - but nothing suggesting it was either specific to something nor the 'proper' application fr it

Yes, Haggerleases, now you bring the title to my attention. I have all the programs on dvd.

The nipple is obviously one meant to connect to an Injection pipe connection. Most likely to be used as a timing tool connected to the High Pressure outlet of (usually ) No 1. As said, as the engine is rotated, the pressure build up will light the light, to indicate the start of injection. A cleaner way than spill timing. an In Line, but could also be used on a rotary such as the Roosa Master, CAV DPA,, DPS, Bosch EPVA, EPVE, or any of the Stanadyne pumps.

It looks unused, but the size of the nut makes it look like it is meant for 'A' size connections, so probably not for anything bigger than a pump with a 10mm plunger size, so relatively low powered engines, (Not much more than 30-40 bhp / cylinder even if turbocharged. ).

Thanks for all of the input, especially Howard’s detailed description. It came from one of our local ‘vide grenier’ car boot sales in southern France so that may also tie in with the low power comments reflecting the popularity of diesel engines here for all forms of transport until recently.

I thought that it was unused until I took the photos and then saw some graunch marks on the knurled knob where someone has gently taken a pair of pliers or the like to it. Not serious but not perfect...

Maybe a tool to pass to my neighbour who has a fine collection of French classics
