Angel 05 speed gauges question

Can you use A1/A1 fly pressure gauges on a Angel 05 speed? I just got an 05 speed with a tadao board and need to check pressures. What should the pressures be around for all around best? Thanks guys!

You can use the lpr gauge on the lpr side, but the hpr wont fit. You would have to swap the hpr gauge onto the lpr adaptor from the a1 kit.

okay then I will give it a try. For the largest volumizer what should the pressures be set at as far as a starting point?

With the largest volumizer you can take your pressure down to around 200 psi.

65 psi. Make sure you set the HPR first, then the LPR.

Got the angel in today but when I took the back plate off I realized it's not a standard allen key it's one that uses a tool with 2 prongs. Any suggestions on removing it? Thought about 2 nails in a vise grip to remove it if that would work, but didn't want to mess anything up.

A golf cleat spike tool is a good substitute for the ram tool. Mini needle nose pliers work too. The 2 nails and a vice grip is also fine. Anything that fits the hole spacing, really. Many ways to skin that cat

There is many ways to skin a cat. Didn't know about the golf cleat tool (only play putput with the wife), I didn't think about the mini needle nose pliers I think I may have a pair lying around somewhere. If not, it'll give me a reason to get one. Thanks again!

By the way I got spoiled with the a1 breech nob, the 05 speed breech nob spring caught me off guard when I took the back plate off!

WOW I feel like an idiot! That thing with 2 hole was a blue ram.... not the lpr! I was thinking of the a1 setup and thought that was the lpr...I was wrong in thinking so... Any way, I checked the HPR set it to 200psi than checked the LPR and was sitting comfortable rite at 60psi with the volumizer on didn't check without the volumizer. My shop was only pumping out 1100psi for my tank so I couldn't really get the best readings, but for what i tested and shot. It's pretty solid. just have to chrono it, forgot to bring my chrono with me.


Thanks for all of your help! I'll have to post a pic up in the angel pic thread for yall.

Speaking of the LPR though, you do use the same tool to remove the back cap of the LPR to access the main seal as you do for the ram, so if you ever need to take it apart it'll be familiar

DOUH! Figures!

Guess I'm going to my local golf shop to get one of those tools. Thanks for the heads up!

You might want to take the ram with you to make sure you get the right tool. The soft plastic spikes in my old golf shoes matched up perfectly. IIRC, the hard metal spikes use a slightly different tool.
