180psi with airfilter still installed: Damn it, what was your tuning kit for higher compression?
The highest ever reading I got was 145psi at 5000km in Anchorage. Now 114psi both sides might have to do with elevation, temperature and a "few days of use" in tropical surrounding. OK, pure envy talking here, and we may not forget these manometer are often quite a bit out of calibration. That is why you prefer to have 2 units for cross reference.
May I just suggest you to include in your video to open the airfilter box, because a clogged airfilter will affect the readings badly. Once I really got shocked by 40psi, as soon I opened the air box reading was good again. Nice video and good tip with the "crocodile switch". Thank you, Van.

Sophie Travelair Patrol 2013 a Jim Petitti special.(RIP) 8 weeks 12.000km Oregon - Alaska - Oregon, now in CR 39.000km and counting. With a DIY foam air filter the rig runs well even in tropical rain. The air box looks then like an aquarium. Final drives: 1. at 5000km, 2. at 34.000km(+friction plates) transmission: 1. 39.000km. 2. on its way.
