well looks like I am going to use 0.9mm nozzle, since it's the only find I could find locally, and it's bigger than my current one

Richard, I ran into another problem, and I've been backtracking it for the past few days.

I have my 2D system connected, with the exception of boost cut failsafe.
FIA2 is monitoring my IDC, pump is priming the system to the given pressure... but it doesn't spray!

I tried disconnecting one of the connectors on the boost valve to simulate working pressure thus forcing the system to spray - no spray, and FIA2 doesn't indicate WI since red light is off
However, if I disconnect the HSV connector, and then disconnect one connector on the boost valve, FIA2 starts blinking the red light!

Note, that in both cases failsafe orange light stays off...

I tested HSV connector with a multimeter for resistance, and didn't get ANY readings.

So based on the this, can I make a conclusion that HSV is dead and I need to change it, or there is something else?

The HSV should read 13 ohms. If you cannot read anything, it is probably dead or one of the wire has come off.

yes, you use purchase the 806-239B - other than the electrical connection, the two valves are very similar in flow and current drawn.

yep, it's dead, no resistance. Tried to resolder the wires, didn't work

how do I connect this fast acting valve to my 2D system? I can't find any decent pics explaining it

connect the wires to the two pins that measures 12 ohms.

Soooo, getting 6.2 ohms. What should the pump read?

It is not easy to determine the condition of the pump by reading the winding resistance.

You need to pull the pump head away from the motor to examine the condition of the shaft bearing. If it is rusted up, it will put extra load on the pump. Fuse blowing follows.

I will switching from an SMC meth kit to an Aquamist. I am curious to know what you guys recommend for a 500-600 whp car. It will be on a daily driven tune of 93 and meth and a race tune of c16. Also how many nozzles will I need I was told by awd tuning 3-5. How many Does your kit come with? Adn can you just use denatured alcohol?

The HFS3 will be good for your application. The kit come with three nozzles as standard. Denatured alcohol is fine provided there are 99% pure.

Hi, had a question about the pump itself.. I've noticed the pump is leaking out of the metal plate held with the 3 screws. Also possibly out of the 2 feed ends. Sorry for the lack of terminology but I was wonder if the pump can be fixed or if it needs to be replaced?

What system do you have?

Shurflo pump has a tendency to leak after a few years of service due to its design. We have made an o-ring + adaptor to seal the front but we don't have stock of them any more. The best solution (not the most economical, but effective) is replace the entire pump itself.

its so noob question, but what the hell.... i already have aquamist hfs-3 kit (but just missing failsafe gauge). so the question is that can i run other failsafe gauge brands on aquamist hfs-3 or should it be the same failsafe gauge that comes with the kit??

thanks

You may be confused between the HFS2 (no failsafe assembly) and HFS3 system.
The HFS2 is supplied with the same controller as the HFS3 (labelled HFS3). But does not come with the following:

1. Dash gauge
2. Gauge cable
3. Flow sensor assembly
4. Hall-effect flow sensor cable.

It is "not" possible to use gauge from other makers.

What is the serial number of the controller?

To test the dim trimmer, just apply a simple 12V to the purple wire.

Default low water level light coming on

I have a quick question as I'm having an issue with my hfs-6 setup. The setup was working flawlessly for 3+ years and after the car was parked for a few months it developed this problem.

As the car comes up in boost the low water level light is coming on. Could a faulty level sensor be the culprit of this problem?

I am using a 1 gallon summit racing tank and it is 95% full with a 75/25 meth(vp m1)/water mixture. The light only comes on with the boost, while the system is spraying and is not on while the car is on an incline/stopping hard/and driving not in boost.

Thanks in advance for any insight before I start pulling the system apart.

I think it is a failsafe trigger, most probably a clogged jet or filter. Do a test spary with the jet in the open air.

Thank you for the reply.

I did the 100% flow test and the spray pattern was good on both of my jets and my gauge was bouncing between 6-7 bars. It seemed the pump was surging during the test. Is the surging normal or should it sound like an external fuel pump?

I did find one major problem that coulld be causing the entire problem though. The clip-in connector where the main meth output line splits to the 2 jets is leaking profusely.

Thank you again

Pete

What type of clip in connector do you have? Can you post a picture?

This is a push fit fitting supplied with our older system. We have since changed to a compression fitting:
http://www.aquamist-direct.com/4mm-t...ssion-fitting/

This type of fitting is prone to leak after several years of service due to the shrinkage of the o-ring seal. the new fitting will not leak over time.

It is available from our US dealers or on the online shop above.

Hey guys,

Looking for a methanol injection system for my 11' wrx. Going to be using a 50/50 blend of water/meth. A friend of mind bought your HFS6 kit a while ago and he swears by it, says it's been amazing for his 20GXTR STi build. Just curious, do you guys not sell that kit anymore?? Or what is your current top of the line kit that is available? Would it be the HFS4??

Thanks guys,

Justin
