Another way to look at it. It's a big syringe. Setting it up the first time You put 50+ lbs of air into the back side with the engine off and the valve open. That pushes the piston all the way down. Then you bleed the air pressure down to about 10lbs.

Now you have an empty syringe. When the engine starts up the engine oil pressure fills the syringe and pressurizes the air on the backside. The syringe is set to give the shot.

If the oil pressure drops Dr Air pressure give it a nice smooth shot of oil.

As soon as the oil pressure rises back up the syringe refills.

Don't get confused by the valve. It doesn't do squat while the car is running. It's only purpose is to trap oil in the syringe when you shut the motor off. You have to close it before the motor is off so it traps oil in the syringe.

The only reason to run a cable or electric valve is convenience. You don't have to get out of the car while it is still running to trap the oil in the Accusump.

Hope I made it more confusing.
That's a good analogy. There's a reason I'm not a teacher.

Wont be till after this track day so I'm going to try and refrain from pushing to hard.
Completed the alignment today and she's already loaded in the trailor.

Was up at 5:00 a.m.. Went to the grocery store to pick up food and drink for today and tomorrow. Picked up the trailor, loaded it, took the car for an alignment, loaded the car, then put fresh rubber on the hauler. And its only 11:45 a.m.. Gitter Dun!!!!!
Temp forecast has changed at T-Hill from 106 and is now supposed to be 108 on Sunday. Going to spend the day eating healthy and hydrating.

Have a good time out there. It's hotter than F down here. I feel like I'm in Austin except there is good food around the corner and decent beer to be found.

Looking at the thread made me think Accusump probably has their instructions on line. Even better, they have a FAQ page. I'd read through that before I listen to the Jackstand Army members.

Thanks Rob. Once the Accusump gets delivered I'm sure I'll get all kinds of literature on it but I'm glad I got you guys to watch my back. 10 heads are always better than one.
Its 104 in El Dorado Hills right now but I'm good. Chillin' inside with the ac on.
Cooler is in the garage and I will be filling it in the morning before I leave. You can be sure that that cooler will have 4 Guinesse's in it and at the end of the day tomorrow you can count on at least two of those being thrown past my tonsils. The other two will be providing back up just in case.

If I had a bit more advance notice/time I probably would have went with something like this.
