ATTN Any one wanting to install a fuel pressure gauge or already did but rubs.

For those wanting to install a fuel pressure sensor but hearing about how the sensor hits the upper radiator hose and have to buy a $50 line/adapter or just let it sit against the hose here is an easy way and is very cheap and in my opinion is a must have and should be sold with the adapter that is sold with the pressure adapter that Glowshift sells.
I spent $1.41 on a 1/8th pipe ABP street elbow. Heck of a lot better over $50!!!!!


Here are some pictures.

Here is what it looks like without the elbow.


Here is the $1.41 elbow.


Here are the pictures of it installed.

the main problem is vibration that kills the sensor. I have lines made at a hydraulic shop for like $20. If you dont wanna send that just get some hose barb fittings and some fuel line.

Didn't know or think about that... Well I guess I will see how long this lasts. I have never heard about the sensors going out... If the sensor goes out I do have the ability to make a line so I will do that if the sensor goes bad.

What did your gauges do when the sender died? I got a friend who's fuel pressure bounces all over the place while driving.

A place here in town called "House of Hose".
A quick Google search and I did find this online if you can not find in your town. Should be the right one but I am sure you have a good price on shipping.

I searched all around town and nobody had anything even remotely similiar. Am I correct that the thread in the fuel bowl is a 12MM metric thread? I agree that Glowshift should have put the adapter in with the gauge.

Not sure on the fuel bowl thread because I already had it from them so all I needed was the elbow. You do need the adapter one way or another because you need the length to get it out there to get the elbow on. I even had to remove the bottom left torques screw from the plate that has the pressure regulator spring in it in order for the elbow to be able to spin on. I was only able to get it about halfway on before it hit that screw.
