LOL…..that ought to do it Donny!February 3, 2015 at 3:08 am #218628
Dang, ,,,, ,, what happen to this thread, ,, , I thought I accidently stumble on a gay porn site ! :rofl:
I fill my Hill MK3 late last night with the Drierite and top off my 22 cricket when I bleed it off about half as much moisture came out of the pump compared to the Hill pack.
I used the foam from a small tin of pellets to hold the granules down so I can watch the color changing into pink.
Also a week ago I changed the value O-ring from the factory A90 to a 006 V75 Viton and the pump became easier to pump on the down stroke !
I’ll update the above results, so far so good !

i thought the same,,, i couldn’t even open this page at home.. 😯 😯 😯 i was afraid if my wife see this and suspect me i am a gay… 😯 😯
let come back to my topic,,,
the parts have been packed like this ,,, and everything were perfect ,, it is really MK4 ..
the hose is really flexible and nice ,, has a 1/8 female as usual ,,,
this is the design from close ,,, and dry pack ,,, but i bought the cap on the QC female long time ago from Best Fittings,, .. but know i am dealing with Hill pump directly…quote GKU:
Can you send all other o-ring links of hill pump ?February 3, 2015 at 7:53 am #218644
This is the main pressure O-ring I use, it very similar to the OEM green one.
This is the Value O-ring and is very similar to the OEM black one if you what it to be easier to pump down try the one above. I’m not sure it will last as long as the one below but it’s very easy to change if it goes bad.
These are the only ones I usually change, but I’ll repost here again if I can get the size on the others.
Again these are for the MK3 pump, does the New Hill MK4 use the same O-rings ?

the silica gel that came with the hill pump is working very well,,,February 3, 2015 at 2:15 pm #218647
Yes, but so far the Drierite I posted above removes about twice the moisture as the Hill packs. The Hill desiccant in these is molecular sieve, not silica gel.
It also changes color from blue to pink when fully saturated AND it can be regenerated in the oven and reused, unlike the Hill packs which Manufacturers states it can’t be reusable/regenerated.
Because of this I figure one pound is enough for anyone to get.
I will store and collect the pink saturated Drierite in another separate glass jar and when the time comes and it’s full, I’ll do the baking/regenerate all at onetime.
