lightning, one suggestion i'd make on your mano is to put a short piece of tubing on the other port looped toward the floor to keep any dust or dirt from getting in that open port. probably not a big issue, but just something that was suggested to me way back when and i thought i'd pass it along for others to consider.

Yes sir, I actually folded a little piece of news paper over the open port for any dust to settle on. It's not tight against the port so it can't alter the reading. Your suggestion is excellent too :D

yes, i noticed the paper in the pic when i zoomed in that is what made me think of passing along the tubing suggestion.

by the way, i figured out how to get you the info on the mano reading at different baro opening points you were asking about. i must have had brain lock when trying to think about it the first time through. what i'll do is wait to see the baro steadily open about halfway (and other points) and then manually close it while noting the new reading on the mano with the baro closed. i will find the other thread and add the data in case it helps.

A small piece of foam makes a great filter though keep it away from the heat and keeps all the trash.
Whenever I have to tap into something that is hotter than the melting temp of the rubber or plastic tubing connected to the sensor I always uses a couple of feet of copper tubing wound in a coil to cool the end of it and not melt the plastic or rubber tubing. I know it works with 1800 to 2000F temperatures quite well on the exhaust of a turbocharged race engine measuring exhaust back pressure.

Cool Thank you! Basically, I was trying to relate mano readings with how far open the door was. I should have gotton a reading with the baro held closed too but didn't think of it at the time :D
