i had this on an impulse
piece of junk
i bought this thing to go on an impulse. getting it on was no problem but when i went to gas it up the sonic starts leakin like crazy so i turn the gas off and strip it to find the oring inside is not falling off. at first i thought maybe it was to big so i put on a smaller one ands try again. same problem. needles to say i sent it back and bought a smartparts mini maxflo.
i heard these were great but they're not. ill never buy another one.
The internals of the Smart Parts Mini Max Flow LPR are very similar to those of the MacDev Sonic - the difference is that SP have combined the piston and valve pin of the Sonic in to one part. Just out of interest, the WGP Tickler LPR is also based on the Sonic LPR, so it is defeinitely a design that works.
I doubt that there was anything major wrong with the Sonic - it probably just needed a service. Admittedly, if you have bought something new, it shouldn't have needed servicing out of the box, but I think MacDev or their distributor would have sorted it for you.
"i heard these were great but they're not. ill never buy another one." -let me fix this for you; "i heard these were great, but mine was not. ill never buy one again because i don't trust those ditry aussies..." ;-)
Dispute: Dude you don't know anything. Your trying to demolish this one because you don't like them for somereason. It for sure doesn't deserve a 1 even if it was terrible, you have no knowledge of this product, and you tested it out come on now that's rediculus.
Most Impulse LPR caps are threaded to take Autococker LPRs (for instance, how many LPR equipped Impulses have you seen fitted with the ANS Jackhammer LPR? That is also an Autococker LPR), so there is no reason why this shouldn't have worked.
