“intenseaty22”Well, back to square one….got to just over 3K Lbs and it started leaking again. Arrrrg!!!


Sounds like the gauge now. Those o-rings see no pressure to leak from when the valve is closed. If you wound up putting a BSP gauge into a NPT fitting that will likely leak at the higher pressures. Mix up a squirt bottle with a couple drops of dish detergent in it to spray on the gauge fitting. It will bubble if leaking.
