I don't have a dyno either.........

The manometer can be a length of clear hose bent in 12" tall U and stapled to a board. Make graduations with a sharpie every inch and number them.

Attach a long enough hose to have the manometer in the cab and drive it. A long hill, power brake or full throttle take off is enough to get a reading.

Sounds like you got all the advice you need. See ya

That sounds fairly easy. I can do that. Have to wait till the rain stops. Maybe tomorrow morning.
