STEP ONE: Before doing any pressure adjustment, make sure that your tractor PTO off pump not turning
STEP TWO: On top of the pressure compensator, that’s where the high-pressure adjustment will be made
STEP THREE: Loosen the lock nut while holding it with an Allen wrench
STEP FOUR: Increase the pressure by turning clockwise. Do it a quarter of a turn at a time. Go to the opposite direction (counter clockwise) if you want to decrease the pressure.
NOTE: Turning a quarter of a turn will give you 100 to 150 psi jump/adjustment. Do not spin freely as it could damage the pressure compensator.

We’re doing a short video today to show the pressure adjustment on the Hydro Leduc pumps which is the 24, 32, and 40 gallon HydraBoost units. The top here is your pressure compensator; and on top of that is the high pressure adjustment. What you do to either increase or decrease is loosen the lock nut while holding it with an Allen wrench. So if you loosen the ring lock nut, then to increase the pressure you turn clockwise and do this a quarter of a turn at a time, re-tighten and by the way this is to be done with your tractor PTO off pump not turning. That will usually give you 100 to 150 psi jump. Do not spin this freely, if you put it all the way in you could damage the compensator. And likewise if you want to decrease the pressure, obviously go the opposite direction counter clockwise.
