Flow Quik in UseJack Schwendener of Jackson Head Works in Citrus Heights, CA says, "The overall photos show the Flow Quik unit installed on a stand that one of my customers gave to me. It was formerly a point-of-sale computer stand in a retail store. I made a few easy modifications to it. I have used standard PVC pipe fittings in suitable sizes for the dummy "cylinder" and connecting piping. The head adaptor was made using 1 inch thick clear acrylic. I used a head gasket to lay out the dimensions, including the head dowels, which are short sections of suitable size rubber hose. The acrylic plate was bored (with a standard adjustable boring head) to fit the PVC pipe in a benchtop "mill/drill". The PVC cylinder was then epoxied in place. The PVC pipe fittings are joined with duct tape so it can be setup and taken down easily. When using PVC fittings, it is sometimes necessary to remove flashing, strengthening ribs, etc. as required.

"As you see from photos, I like to test the entire flow path so I have installed a manifold on the intake side (with an entrance bell made from modeling clay) and a mandrel-bent exhaust header stub.

Flow Quik in Use





John Aller at Air Cooled Engines Plus found that at higher flow levels the corrected flow numbers are more stable with a stronger vacuum. He hooked two shop vacs together with a Y fitting to get a higher depression. He reported that the corrected CFM numbers did not change, but at higher flow levels the numbers were more stable.

Test Plenum and Air Supply built by Farrel Vaughan with his 2 & 3 combo Flow Quik. Notice the gate valves at the right end of the 2 inch and 3 inch runs. They are used to shut off the run that is not being used.
