fuel psi gauge

Im getting ready to order some gauges.. Do I have to have that stickly diesel adapter to hook the sending unit up to the fuel test port or can i just by a 1/8 adapter thing? Will the sending unit hit the radiator hose?

The adapter is REQUIRED because the test port is metric and most gauges are NPT. Depending on which gauge you use, the hose is not an issue.

Yes an adapter with a 90* fitting will allow you to come right off the test port. No need for that hose.

Thanks, Ill look for that 90 adapter. I just had a hard time spending $50+ on a hose if I didnt have to have it.

Nope, that's the test port on the fuel regulator. I bought the gauge and sender as a package on E-bay, Cybertronics I think, works well enough.

With the 90 degree adaptor there is plenty of room to clear the CAC tube.
