Are looking at 30"hg pressure, or 30"hg vacuum?

I think they just looked at the wrong side of the chart.___________________________________________

Thats not the greatest chart for what we're talking about.
But I ain't got one better, so I'm not complaining too much. Yet.

Did my previous attachment not show up? I was kinda curious about input on that.....elevation effecting maximum vac. level.

Yea, I guess I am just a dummy but way back in the late 60's I took a what I would call a crash Course at the Carrier facility here in Houston two nights a week for 4 hrs. and it did teach me a lot of the really technical stuff at that time I thought I would never use, hey I was young and knew it all at that age,right? But at the very first class I remember one thing the teacher told us and he put it just like this it's impossible to pull a 30" vacuum and I have always remembered that.

I saw it. But since I'm basically at sea level, it doesn't affect me.

I have always been taught pulling a vacuum by reading you gauge (30hg) is not good enough, you have to pull it lower by reading your microns. It has been pounded in my head for many years.
I guess this whole thing could have been avoided if I would'nt have mis understood the statement. (chart readings vs. actually gauge reading)
Sorry, I will stick my tail between my legs and walk away.
Oh yeah, Bill I hope your wife is a sweet lady since you compare me to her.
