The Newclear Pressure Tester is a revolutionary new machine that has been specifically designed for the automotive engineering industry. It has the capability to effectively test various cylinder heads and blocks e.g. a single Honda cylinder head, a Cummins 350 big cam block or a cummins NH block.
The main features of the Newclear Pressure Tester are one of total visibility through a transparent pressure plate with a 360° rotation capacity as well as an adjustable center of gravity to allow rotation of either a cylinder head or block to take place with ease. It is a complete unit with the added advantages of an in-line heater system which can provide hot and cold hydraulic testing capabilities and a quick set-up time.
- Clear visibility.
- Simple and quick set up time.
- In-line heater system for hot / cold water testing.
- Universal side clamping system.
- Complete rubber blanking-off element kit to suit most cylinder heads / blocks.
- Adjustable center of gravity for ease of rotating cylinder heads / blocks 360°.
PRESSURE TESTING A MUST!!!
All Cylinder Heads and Blocks should be pressure tested especially the “Cooked” ones.
With today’s modern Multi-Valve Light weight, high output Aluminium Cylinder Heads with Cast Iron Blocks, it has become essential to have a good quality hot and cold Hydraulic Pressure Tester.
The Most Important Criteria to Meet is that of :
The customer must be confident that the “Problem” has been positively identified. Major Piston manufacturers and Cylinder Head Gasket manufacturers that have been consulted have confirmed the need for High Quality Pressure Testing to take place when an engine is reconditioned or remanufactured.
With the great difference in Expansion Rates between aluminium, cast iron and modern light weight design, it has become essential to have a High Quality Pressure Test done in order to detect Fractures and Porosity in cores.
Tests have proven :
that some cores only fracture on disassembly and not when the engine overheats, that some fractures are only evident after a Cold Hydraulic Test, then a Hot Hydraulic Test followed by another Cold Hydraulic Test. It is important to note that these three tests have to be carried out in rapid succession – 10 minutes maximu

Rubber blanking off elements – full set provided which will suit most heads
Rubber blanking element kit provides manifold blanking rubber to allow inlet

Head cannot be cooled down upon com-pletion of test, danger to operater.
Water gets dirty fairly quickly. Bubbles appear and one is not sure if a
rubber stopper is leaking or a crack – you cannot pinpoint the exact
location of the leak.The rubber gasket / steel plate tends to cover areas
which may be cracked e.g. jacket to valve seat.
