Edge Gauges

I have the older Edge gauges. The ones that dont read FICM volts. Does anyone know if this will read ICP Pressure?

I am having 3/4 second crank time when the truck sits over night. I checked FICM volts last year, was steady at 58v key, crank and run. I am not having this issue when the truck is warm or even right after it fires. For example, this AM the truck took a FULL 3 mississippis. Then I shut it down after it fired. Then only a full 1 mississippi.

I need to know if I am going crazy or I need to track something down.

Possibly fuel system bleading down over night causing the excessive crank time

Nothing I would worry to much about unless it gets worse

Today I went and looked at my filter which only have 2400 miles on them. They look brand new.

I was wondering if it could be an oil bleed off and when it is cranking it priming the system each time? Or would that crank time be much more than 3/4 seconds?

Also, my top filter cap sucked. I put a brand new on one today when checking filters...

thanks for the reply!

Once the filter is in there you shouldn't remove unless you plan in discarding it that may be your bleed down prob getting a slight air suction when the used o-rings don't seal properly
