fuel pressure gauge

I am getting ready to purchase a mechanic fuel pressure gauge. Can someone please tell me what all I need besides the gauge, wiring, fittings? It seems autometer only sells gauge and not wiring when buying mechanical.

Mechanical gauge doesn't need much wiring. Just the light would need it.
I suggest giving this guy a call, number on his homepage. He will help you decide which is best for what you want to do. Great customer service.

if its going in the cab i would seriously consider going with electical. the fuel in cab thing just doesnt sound like a good idea. i bought an adaptor that went from fuel filter housing (under hood, not frame rail) straight to wires for gauge. (auto meter) worked perfectly!

You can have an analog fuel pressure gauge in the truck, but you will need to install one of THESE in-line so that you are not bringing fuel into the cab. For pressures, I'm just not a big fan of electric sensors.
