[DML] Re: 2/3 lb pressure drop in 30 mins OK?

What your readings mean is some of the air used to make the pressure
dissolved into the coolant. 2/3 LB really doesn't mean much. If you
can pump the pressure up to 14-15 psi and hold it there for 15 min
without seeing the car piss coolant all over then you can be confident
in your work. I would recomend tightening the clamps on all the hoses
you can reach after the car reaches operating temperature. Other than
that it sounds like you're "good to go".
