hey all. I'm a new graduate of Mechanical Engineering technolgy and was seeking some help and hoping your guys could help. I have a friend that has a small transmission rebuild shop and he wants me to help him build a machine that can flush the valve body solenoids that he removes from the transmission. He wants to be able to flush around 6-10 at a time. He has a machine already that tests them to make sure they are ok, but it only does 1 at time so he wants to flush them before he tests them.I am able to build the test unit with all the hydraulics and mountings. Here is where I run into the problem. I'm not sure how to or what to use for the electrical parts. I need leads that go to each solenoid and I need a device that can send voltage to them for 2 sec, the release for 2 sec for a 5 min period. And I want to be able to vary the voltage cause some solenoids only take a few volts. This is an example of what I want it to do and am not sure on how to do that. Any info, suggestions or anything would be greatly appreciated. And thanks in advance.
