Installed Fuel Pressure gauge

Installed my fuel pressure gauge it was pretty straight forward.

went with a glow-shift gauge, autometer pod , strictly fuel line. i have to paint the pod still. it looks pretty good for a cheap gauge, and you can read it VERY easily.




short vid


how does my pressure look? that was with SRL BTW

dont know if I'd would have ran fuel inside the cab. An Isolator would have been ideal if you wanted it all mechanical.

I'm with Chuck, installing a mechanical fuel pressure gauge inside the cab is not only absurd but dangerous. If that line was to leak, blow, etc., good luck cleaning the smell of diesel out of your truck.

guys its an electric gauge... the sender is under the hood. The strictly fuel line is a sensor relocation off the fuel bowl so the sensor doesnt rub the upper rad hose.

no fuel in the cab. the strictly line goes into the test port on the fuel bowl. then the sensor is on the other end. just wires running into the cab. ill post some pics up tomorrow.
