Poor man’s damper dyno – testing if dampers actually work!

We needed to operate the damper (AVOn monotube no gas) at full force in the horizontal position to see if it will work like this.  Spoiler alert!  It doesn’t.  You can feel the air which gets into the valves once it has been removed.

Also a few boring calculations about spring rates and leverage!
