    Where do you tap into the pump to get your pressure reading? I read in the manual that it needs to be set to 2000psi but just need to know where to get the reading from.

    thanks

    You tee it into the passenger side power angle hose with a simple hardware sourced 1/4" tee fitting, a couple pipe nipples, and two spare quick couplers.

    thank you, that is how i figured since that is how you set the crossover relive pressure.

    do i block off the flow to the ram when reading the pressure or do i just tee in the gauge and leave it connected to the ram?

    Doesn't matter either way. If the pump and blade are on the truck just tee it in and run the blade against the stop (which will put the pump into the relief) and check the pressure. If your bench testing simply pop the gage on and run the pump.
