Fuel Pressure regulator

Here is the fuel Pressure gage I got but it came with no instructions. Can anyone give me an idea of how to install this on the secondary fuel bowl?

Thanks,

did you check to see if the manufacturer has a online manual/instructions.
From the looks of it it will be a cut and splice type installation. Not shure I would want to add another weak spot my self. Just thinkin out loud here sorry

Where did you get that, it doesn't look to me like it would hold up at all?

With a liquid gauge like that, you will have to keep it under the hood, and exposed to all that heat. These gauges tend not to last long like that, and with the contruction from the pic, it looks to be a huge problem if it was to fail.

There isn't a connection for the Fuel Pressure test port, or a cap.

This is something I'd return in your position, and save up for a proper gauge, or Insight's sending unit and hardware.

Yes, that's an extremely scary thought to use a mechanical gauge under the hood. It looks like a fuel pressure regulator but odd that it doesn't have AN fittings on it. It doesn't even look like the correct type for a 6.0 RR kit, nor the correct fuel lines.
