    Default Re: pump/motor/reservoir size help for two 36" stroke cylinders-first timer

    Cylinder volumes:
    Base end volume: 5" bore 36" stroke = 707 cubic inch / 231 =3.06 gallon
    Rod volume: 2" rod 36" stroke = 113 cubic inch
    Rod end volume : = 707 - 113 = 594 cubic inch / 231 = 2.57 gallon

    3.06 - 2.57 = .49 gallon required from the reservoir per cylinder So a 2 gallon reservoir should be adequate once the system is filled per Leejohn's instructions.

    The tank on the pump motor is about 2.3 qt of usable space.

    The difference of extended to retracted volume on both cyl is about .978 gal


    2.6 usable gal tank

    I think I know what you mean, when pumping the cyls in, run until both cyls are all the way in and when you pump the other way. I know oil well come out one hose before the other, you can hook up the hose that the oil comes out 1st. After you hook it up just keep pumping until it comes out the other, then hook up. The cyl that you hooked up well not move until the other one is hook up and starts to build pressure.

    One hose from one pump port to a tee and two lines from the tee to each cyl.

    Same thing for the other port.

    You will need the larger tank.

    If you use the smaller tank, the pump will be sucking air before the cyl are fully extended.
