electric fuel pressure guage

so im throwing the idea around about buying an electic fuel pressure 0-100 guage. ive never hooked up an electric fuel pressure guage, im guessing you just plumb in a sender into that piece that is on the fuel bowel, then just plug the guage into that i just want to make sure that i can use an electric fuel pressure guage. thanks guys

That is exactly what I did with a dipricol optix electric fuel pressure guage and a billet aluminum replacement fuel bowl cap.

What year is your truck? Usually the mechanical fuel pump pulses with kill a pressure sensor in a hurry on these trucks.

My truck is 2003 6.0 diesel. I didn't know of any problems with the electric guage. Hope I'm not in for a miserable surprise. Is there a thread you can direct me to discussing this?

Ok, great, got that cleared up. Completely different trucks, wrong forum.

'94-'97 trucks have a mechanical fuel pump actuated my a lobe on the camshaft. That causes for their to be pulsations in the fuel system, because of that when you put a pressure sensor the pulsations will ruin the sensor in short order. Same with a mechanical gauge that is not liquid filled.
