Hi there, I'm Jeremy I'm going to help you with your question.On the side of the pump itself there should be a screw that you can turn to raise and lower the pump output pressure.Some are flathead, some are allen. Have someone run a function and turn the screw while watching the gauge if you can do that whithout being in harms way. If not then do the adjustment and test afterwards little at a time go 1 turn each time to get it set.

No adjustment on pump

Then the only thing that will limit the pressure is the main relief valve on the hydraulic manifold
