This system is high-volume low-pressure so it never reaches high pressure, Under full load I think it reaches 475 PSI before the wheels slip, rail systems use this for a long time I know of four engines this use the same setup haven't failed yet, and as for the two stage pump there is a pressure setting that will not allow it to kick down!
475 PSI? I find that difficult to believe.

Erie S1

Thanks for the drawing. I have not received it yet. Should be in my hands in the next day or so as long as Rodger remembers.

The filter outside of the tank should be a return filter, omit the outside suction filter, this summer I should have my sp1 Narrow Gauge Little Giant at NEOLS this summer open meet if you need to see it up close
