Thanks

This pressure gauge arrived and i was wondering what pressure to use to check, usually 25% above working pressure is a guide

Check the vessel , there may be some factory marks on the shell ,  Design pressure/ Max. working pressure   + Test pressure.  If so important - I would expect to find some data.  Seems a good Tig weld procedure used - so probably is important.

Repeated proof testing not always sound idea , probably not required for lifespan (whatever that is) so + 25% seems realistic.  I would think the factory test would be  1.5 x the maximum working pressure for 1/2 hour.

Thanks I am about to renew all seals if required and before fuel us some soapy water and put a test on, will be interesting to see what the pressure reads after the priming pump is used I think its 6 strokes
