Pump and Pressure
|With the Bacharach test stand, you will learn about fuel pump calibration, operation and troubleshooting. As depicted here, the stand has a Stanadyne pump mounted and being calibrated. This pump is only one of several different types that you will work with.
The comparator depicted here allows for comparing injectors to one another and testing to see that they meet specifications. This assures a smooth running engine with each cylinder doing it's fair share of the work. This particular stand is set up for Cummins injection.
Calibration and testing of fuel delivery components are only a small portion of the training you receive.
